Everybody needs to brush their teeth. Oral
health is related to overall health. Here are some tips to picking a
good toothbrush. First and foremost, you need to get a brush that has
soft bristles. The harder ones just brush
your gums away, which is not healthy. When you buy a toothbrush they
are labeled, soft, medium, and so on. Get
the soft ones. You need to brush for about 2 minutes, two times a day.
Flossing is also essential. This way you
get rid of the plaque and other residue that hides in your mouth. Just
like many say, "Only floss the teeth you
want to keep."
If you are using a manual toothbrush, brush at a 45 degree angle. This
way the bristles are able to get in between
your teeth, not only on the flat surfaces. Remember to also brush
gently. If you have an automatic toothbrush,
they already have timers, and spin in a way to reach all your teeth,
make sure you get even the ones in the back.
Replace your manual toothbrush every three or four months, or after
you have been sick since bacteria sits in your
toothbrush. A simple way to disinfect a toothbrush is dip it in a
50/50 hydrogen peroxide and water solution once
a week. Most automatic brushes come with a cleaner.
Store your toothbrush in a cool, dry place. Keep it away from the
toilet. When a toilet flushes, bacteria fly
everywhere. Overall health tips to keep your teeth and mouth
healthy, try and limit your caffeine intake, and dark
drinks, stop smoking, and increase calcium levels in your diet.

the plain cavity protection, without the
whitening ingredients, are best for your gums and oral health. After
we eat the food particles get caught in
