If you are looking for a deeper clean, you may want to consider investing in an electric toothbrush. These are able to reduce plaque and gingivitis more effectively than a manual toothbrush. They even have built-in timers to ensure you brush your teeth for the correct amount of time.
Use a Mouthwash: Regular mouthwash use can help prevent gum disease, slow tartar buildup, reduce the amount of plaque on teeth, and remove food particles that were missed during brushing and flossing. It can also help prevent inflamed and bleeding gums by reducing the number of bacteria in your mouth. Look for mouthwashes that contain fluoride or have the ADA seal to get the most benefit.
Healthy teeth rely on healthy gums to keep them in place. Take care of your gums to maintain a beautiful, functional smile that lasts a lifetime!
