– To help assist with any cleaning that you need done between your teeth, an interdental tool will be needed, which can include a dental floss thread or a water flosser. Two types of dental floss are waxed and unwaxed floss.

– Because cleaning your tongue is so important, you will need to make sure to use a tongue scraper every day to scrape off bacteria that may be present.

– To help to avoid dental abrasion, brush your teeth twice every day with a brush that has soft bristles.

– Brushing after meals can be overly abrasive. Instead, use a different nonabrasive cleaning tool.

– Alternative cleaning tools that are helpful for cleaning and rinsing out your mouth after eating include mouthwash and chewing gum.

– Two common forms of mouthwash to consider are those that help freshen breath and those that can eliminate bacteria responsible for bad breath and help prevent cavities and plaque buildup.

– Visit your dentist to have your teeth cleaned twice every year.
