Flossing before brushing is a more effective routine. Flossing loosens or removes any food and bacteria between teeth. Make sure to brush after to finish removing food, plaque and unwanted bacteria. It’s important to remove food and bacteria so decay or gum disease doesn’t occur. It’s ideal to replace a toothbrush every three to six months. A toothbrush bristles can become flattened and frayed over time, making it less effective. A toothbrush can also start to harvest germs so be sure to properly rinse it after each use.
It’s very important to take care of the tongue. The tongue can harvest bacteria that cause foul smelling breath. Make sure to take the time to brush or scrape the tongue during the daily oral routine. Bacteria filled buildup on the tongue can also cause infections or sores. Be sure to brush the tongue to fresh breath.
