Teeth Cleaning Tips for a Healthy Smile

Teeth Cleaning Tips for a Healthy Smile

In order to have a healthy and successful smile, you need to properly clean your teeth each day. Oral hygiene is the most important aspect of dental care, and we are happy to teach you all about it to help you clean and care for your oral cavity! Your oral hygiene routine should include the following four steps:

Brush your teeth

Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. It is generally recommended that you brush in the morning when you wake up and at night right before you go to bed. For a cleaner smile, you are more than welcome to brush after each meal and snack.

Floss your smile

Floss your teeth at least once a day—it doesn’t matter when. This technique is essential and vital if you wish to have a healthy smile. It will help free food particles that are stuck between your teeth as well as reduce the plaque and tartar buildup between your teeth, which will help minimize the chances of developing gum disease.

Rinse your mouth

Rinse your mouth daily with a beneficial mouthwash of your choice. This mouthwash could be anti-gingivitis, bacteria-killing, or fluoride mouthwash. It can also contain alcohol if you don’t mind the burning sensation it leaves behind. To successfully rinse, simply sip a small amount of the liquid into your mouth, swish it around for 30-40 seconds (or however long the mouthwash label suggests), and spit the liquid into the sink once the time is up.

Visit your dentist

Your dental cleanings are the most important steps in properly cleaning your smile. During your appointments, the dentist or hygienist will deeply clean and nourish your smile. They will also remove the plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, which will help you prevent gum disease. If the plaque is left untreated, it could eventually lead to loose and lost teeth.

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Couret Is Trusted By 100 Days Of Summer Cast Member, Vincent Anzalone
vincent anzalone review
“My entire experience with Dente has been pleasant from the attentive staff to reminding me several times of my upcoming appointments, to the friendly greeting when I walk into the Dente door. Most importantly, I feel the cleanings and repairs I’ve had were as important to Dr. Couret (maybe even more so) as they were to me. I even got a personal follow up call from Dr. Couret to check on potential pain. That is something I’m certain has never happened before. I’d give 3 thumbs up, were that possible.”
