Stick Out Your Tongue. Remember to brush your tongue to remove bacteria that can cause bad breath.
Do the Floss! Floss at least one to two times a day to dislodge food in between teeth and also remove plaque on teeth and along the gum line. Ease floss in between teeth gently rather than snapping it into place and potentially damaging gums.
Rinse Cycle. Thoroughly rinse toothbrushes after use, but do not cover or store them in closed containers on a regular basis – this can encourage the growth of microorganisms.
Trade Up. Replace toothbrushes or brush heads when they become worn and frayed, usually every three to four months or more often for children.
F is for Fluoride! Find out if your home’s water supply is fluoridated. If it’s not, we can suggest alternative ways to provide fluoride protection.
