B) colgate total tooth paste, hex dine mouth wash, both small size. Use gum paint for the gums for 2 to 3 weeks. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.
C) while a toothbrush can clean the surfaces of your teeth, only floss can remove what lurks in between and in the tight spots under the gum line. Not flossing after brushing is like taking a shower without washing under your arms.
No, it doesn’t matter if you brush first or floss first, though flossing before brushing may allow more fluoride from your toothpaste to reach between your teeth.
To floss on the go, try an interdental cleaner, which is a nerdy way of saying those special little wooden or plastic picks, sticks or brushes designed to clean between the teeth. You’d be surprised how many people keep a stash in their car!
flossing daily prevents infection and keeps your breath fresh. It even helps you look younger by reducing the disease that leads to receding gums– a tell-tale sign of aging. Flossing prevents cavities and gum disease and that can save you money – lots of money. Every cavity you prevent can save $2,000 over a lifetime. That’s a lot of dough. Hawaii anyone?
It only takes a minute to floss, less time than it takes to fix a cup of coffee. It is easy, it provides health benefits that last a lifetime – and it makes you look and feel better.
So, give your teeth and gums a warm hug every day by wrapping them in a floss embrace. Your oral and overall health will improve – and so will your breath.
All the grooming in the world won’t help if you have a piece of spinach stuck in your teeth, or if you have bad breath because of a gum infection.
Keep your baby cavity free. Dental tips: - brush teeth as soon as the tooth erupts with kids tooth paste. Parents can pass harmful bacteria from their mouth to their children’s mouth, which can put children at an increased risk for cavities. Avoid things like licking your baby’s pacifier to clean it. Avoid biting & sharing food.
