Updated on May 3, 2013

We often visit dentist for dental checkup if were fortunate enough to spend on revitalizing teeth. However, if we can’t afford why not make a habit of proper dental care at home especially imploring it to the kids. I have realized the importance of proper hygiene and care to our teeth. Mouth is the mirror of our body it reflects of how we take good care of our health everything we eat goes first to the mouth. A healthy mouth certainly indicates a healthy life style and awareness towards one’s personal hygiene and care. And, poor hygiene is the higher risk of developing common problem to our mouth and entire health. Better take seriously of taking note the steps of Daily importance of Oral Care.

Here’s how

1. Brush twice a day, once in the morning and before bedtime.

2. To properly brush the teeth, use short, gentle strokes, paying extra attention to the gum line, hard-to-reach back teeth and areas around fillings, crowns or other restoration.

3. Concentrate on thorough cleaning each section of outer surfaces of upper teeth, then your lower teeth, inner surfaces of upper teeth, then lower teeth and clean also the chewing surfaces of teeth. For fresher breath, be sure to brush your tongue, too.

4. Use tooth brush with soft bristles. Brush sometimes caused gum bleeding. Replace your toothbrush every three months. It is also very important to change toothbrushes after you’ve had a cold, since the bristles can collect germs that can lead to reinfection.

5. Regular floss helps clean the spaces between the teeth.

6. Use mouth rinsing and mouth wash after brush and every few hours; including after meals

7. Avoid consumption of cigarette, tobacco, and alcohol

8. Every 6 months visit dentist for regular checkup. For kids dental checkup at regular intervals.
