Our dentist, Dr. Rani Ramnath, strongly recommends keeping up on oral hygiene. This is because oral hygiene is vital if you want a top-notch oral health and smile. So, she would like to help you have the best oral hygiene possible so you can have strong and healthy teeth and gums. To help you, she is happy to share some oral hygiene advice.

-Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. This is important because brushing too much or not enough can harm your smile in many ways.

-Use the right toothbrush and toothpaste while you brush. It’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. This is because soft bristles clean your teeth and care for your gums while fluoride toothpaste strengthens and nourishes your tooth enamel.

-Keep up with your flossing routine. This means you need to floss at least once a day. As you do so, use a product that is easy to maneuver. It’s also best to be careful along the gumline as you floss because being rough can damage the oral tissues.

-Use the right oral hygiene tools while cleaning the smile. To ensure the best instruments, you need to look for the American Dental Association seal of approval. This seal proves that the product is safe and effective in an oral hygiene routine.
