Good oral hygiene starts with the way you clean your teeth at home. Brushing your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day, flossing properly, and using mouth rinse can lower your risk of tooth decay and gum disease by removing plaque from your teeth and killing harmful bacteria in your mouth.
In addition to your daily oral hygiene routine, you should schedule at least two professional cleanings per year. Dentists and oral hygienists use special tools that remove plaque and tartar more thoroughly than the tools you use at home. Professional cleanings also give your dentist the opportunity to inspect your teeth and gums for problems such as cavities, teeth misalignment, and gum disease.
