Regular oral hygiene is a very essential aspect of your dental health as well as your health in general. With oral hygiene, you need to focus on three key regions of your mouth: the teeth, gums and tongue. It's important to brush and floss your teeth AT LEAST TWICE a day. When you brush your teeth, use a brush with small bristles. Change out your toothbrush at least every four months. Brushing your teeth can get rid of dead cells from your tongue. It also works to get rid of any excess food particles and bacteria. Try and make a routine of cleaning your teeth after you eat. If you work away from home, or are at school take a small travel size toothbrush with you and sneak off to a restroom after you eat. Swish water in your mouth after you eat a meal. You will be able to get rid of some of the food debris that were stuck in your teeth. Using a solution mixed with water, you can also cure periodontal disease. You can also choose to use natural oral hygiene treatment options to get rid of bad breath bacteria. Using baking soda and hydrogen peroxide will do wonders. If you really want to clean your mouth, use a natural remedy by adding some antiseptic tree oil or eucalyptus oil. Make sure you floss at least once a day, ideally more. Flossing helps to remove food particles that are caught in your teeth. It also helps to remove gathered plaque on your teeth and gums. It is very important to get rid of any plaque that is on your teeth, because not only can it cause periodontal disease, it can also cause heart disease and other cardiovascular illnesses. Go as far back into your mouth as you can without gagging. most of the bacteria is nestled there. If you put on dentures, always make sure you clean them thoroughly. They should be cleaned at least once a day. Schedule regular dentist visits and cleanings. You should have your teeth or dentures cleaned and checked twice a year, if not more. If you have cavities, make an appointment with your dentist to have them filled. Cavities are also an opening to allow bacteria in, so you definitely want to fill them as soon as possible.
