Looking after your teeth is quite intricate and sometimes just brushing is not enough to give your teeth and gums total care. Of course, getting a good brush is essential; regular brushing will remove any film, bacteria and plaque from the surfaces. But one of the biggest dangers comes from food that gets lodged between the teeth and seeing as your toothbrush can’t reach these places, this food will start to breed bacteria and produce acids that will eat into your teeth’s enamel. To back up your brushing, you need other products to help you out. Flossing and inter-dental brushes can get into the dark areas between your teeth and up around your gums to ensure your whole mouth is free from foodstuffs. The crowning glory to all of this is to use a mouthwash- this will complete your cleaning regime completely. However, what a lot of people forget to do is to clean their tongue; this holds more bacteria than any other part of your mouth, so by scrubbing it gently at the end of the day and using a mouthwash afterwards, you have ensured that your oral hygiene is the best it can get.
