Here are some at-home tips to keep your teeth and gums healthy between routine visits:
- Brush your teeth twice a day. Use a timer or play a song that lasts 2 minutes every time you brush.
- Brush softly. Brushing too hard, especially with a hard toothbrush, can ruin the enamel on your teeth.
- Floss, floss, floss. Brushing your teeth isn’t enough. If you really want to be an expert flosser, floss BEFORE you brush to help dislodge anything below the gum line.Change your toothbrush every 3 months, or sooner if you’ve been sick.
- Pamper yourself with a high-tech rotary toothbrush. They clean better than those ol’ manual brushes.
- Chew gum. (Just make sure it’s sugar free!) If you can’t brush your teeth in between meals, gum can help keep your teeth cleaner than if you did nothing at all.
