The importance of oral care cannot be taken for granted. Maintaining good oral hygiene helps prevent all sorts of dental problems such as gum infections, cavities, plaque, and even sores. The underlying message is that everyone needs oral care on a daily basis. This is not the only reason that you must maintain good oral hygiene. According to recent research, gum diseases can impose more serious effects on the human body and increase the risk of heart disease.
If you wish to maintain your and your family’s sparkling smile and long-term health, follow the top three practices below.
This may sound like a no-brainer, but the value of brushing your teeth is highly underrated by people. As a rule, make sure that you brush your teeth at least twice a day, using a soft bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste containing fluoride.
The head of the brush should be small enough to wipe away plaque that is fused deep within the teeth. Spend at least two minutes brushing your teeth so that every area is brushed adequately.
Brush your teeth at an angle of 45 degrees against your gums and brush back and forth to eliminate the bacteria from the root. Don’t forget to brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen up your breath.
Your mouth and throat are interconnected. This means that poorly maintained oral health can adversely impact your throat. To make sure your oral and vocal health remains steady, gargle at least twice a month with Gargle Away® by Nature’s Jeannie.

Flossing is a practice of cleaning between the teeth. This is a common practice after brushing the teeth and is ideal if done twice a day. Primarily, there are two purposes of flossing: firstly, it cleans the surfaces of the teeth where a toothbrush cannot reach. Secondly, it clears any spaces that are present between teeth fragments.
While normal floss is similar to a cotton thread, some people use floss tape that slides between teeth in a more convenient manner.
