Dental Hygiene in Los Angeles
When you take care of your teeth, they will last a lifetime. Brushing, flossing on a daily basis and visiting your dental office twice (or more) a year will ensure that your overall oral health is at its optimum shape.
Brushing with a soft bristle brush, using fluoride toothpaste and doing it at least twice a day is a great start. Tooth brushing instructions include brushing your teeth at a 45-degree angle and making circles.
Just imagine your mouth as a map. You want to go from tooth to tooth circling; brush on, brush off. Be sure to go to the very back of your molar to get to the deepest darkest crevice. Singing your ABCs or Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star twice is just the right timing.
Flossing is in itself a very important part of dental hygiene. You can floss whenever you want, as long as you do it. Most of the time, flossing is down before or after your toothbrush routine.
Getting between what your brush cannot ensure that all debris is clear and plaque will not have the opportunity of becoming calculus. If you floss forward and backward of the tooth in front to the tooth in the back of each space, you will be able to cover your whole mouth in no time. Just don’t forget your back molars. That last tooth is the hardest and most forgotten tooth in flossing.
