flossing2-1024x683-1There are plenty of ways to keep your teeth looking and feeling healthy for your lifetime. Preventing dental issues starts first and foremost with yourself. Maintaining a great oral health routine is an issue some individuals have. In order to maintain a great hygiene routine, brush your teeth at least twice a day with an ADA approved soft bristle brush and toothpaste.

After brushing your teeth, make sure to floss in between. Flossing allows you to remove plaque buildup in hard to reach areas for your tooth brush. Flossing not only helps clean those spaces, but it disrupts plaque colonies from building up, preventing damage to the gums, teeth, and bone.

Rinsing after brushing and flossing is also incredibly important as it flushes away any of the excess residue left. Look at it as almost like an ending to this routine. It seals the cleanliness in and leaves your breath fresh.
