Brushing Your Teeth Twice a Day – Why It’s not enough

Mar 28, 2019

If brushing twice a day was enough, all of us would have impeccable teeth. In fact, having oral problems despite regular brushing are very common. According to American Dental Association (ADA), brushing your teeth is not nearly enough for perfect dental care. Here’s everything you need to do in order to have perfect teeth forever.

Flossing

The ADA recommends flossing your teeth daily. Food particles are often lodged between teeth and result in plaque formation. If this plaque isn’t gotten rid of, it develops into tartar that causes cavity, decay and severe damage to teeth. Flossing cleans these insides and prevents the formation of cavities, thereby, keeping your teeth completely safe.

Mouthwash

Brushing and flossing are great but they don’t ensure flawless oral hygiene. That’s right, teeth are only a quarter of your mouth and if you don’t take care of the rest, you can have some serious dental issues. The tongue and gums are sensitive parts. They can develop infectious diseases if the accumulated bacteria are not taken care of. Bacteria leave a layer of biofilm upon your teeth which in turn cause infections.
Mouthwash is the perfect solution. Using mouthwash daily, preferably before sleep, kills off all the bacteria and leaves your tongue and gums clean.

Regular Dental Checkups

Even brushing, flossing and using mouthwash combined won’t cut it. You need regular dental checkups as well. We recommend a checkup every 6 months. Regular checkups are necessary because some tartar and cavity cannot be eradicated by the above mentioned tools. They’re just too strong. Your dentist will remove it by scaling it from your teeth. Also, the dentist can detect early any serious problems such as mouth cancer and infections.
