Daily dental care is just as important as maintaining your routine dental appointments. Brushing morning and night for two minutes is required to properly remove plaque buildup. Depending on your diet and the spacing of your teeth, your dental professional may suggest that you increase the number of times you brush per day.
Angle the bristles toward the gum line, brush the outside surface, inside surface, and chewing surface of each tooth. Brush your tongue to prevent bad breath; the white film you find on your tongue is bacteria buildup. Toothbrushes do have a limited life span, so, be sure to replace your toothbrush every three months and after being sick!
