Tips for Better Oral Hygiene You Can Begin TodayGood oral hygiene isn't something that takes a lot of planning. If you feel that you've neglected your teeth and gums, but want to make a change, there are steps that you can take right now. By following these tips and making oral hygiene a priority, you can drastically improve the health of your mouth.

Get a Better Toothbrush

If your toothbrush is worn down with frayed bristles, swapping it out for a better model can make a big difference. Choose a toothbrush with round, soft bristles that doesn't hurt your gums. While a good toothbrush might cost a bit more than a cheap, ineffective option, the benefit for your teeth in the long-run is worth it.

Start Flossing

A lot of people really dislike flossing, but if you want to improve your oral hygiene and your dental health, it is important to start. Floss your teeth every day, and you'll notice an improvement in your gum health quickly.

Rinse with Mouthwash

Mouthwash doesn't just freshen the breath. Certain therapeutic mouth rinses can strengthen the teeth and treat oral health conditions. By rinsing out your mouth with mouthwash before bed, you'll keep your teeth free of bacteria and plaque that cause cavities. You'll also help to protect your gums from gingivitis.

Make a Dental Appointment
