Dental Hygienists suggest these Healthy Teeth Habits
The following dental health tips will make it difficult to have an excuse why the mouth is in dire need of attention. A healthy smile does not come easy and requires attention.
- Brushing, flossing and rinsing the mouth will eliminate the bacteria that cause gum disease and tooth decay.

- Scrape or brush the tongue to get rid of bacteria that reside on the tongue and may attack the teeth and gums. Scraping the tongue also helps to get rid of bad breath.
Flossing is important because your teeth are round, not flat, especially your back teeth. “Where they’re touching, you’re not reaching,” Lugaila says. “With a toothbrush, you’re missing almost two-thirds of the teeth.”
