It is important that proper brushing is carried out with a soft bristled tooth brush for at least 2 minutes 2 times per day. Flossing is the best way to clean between the teeth to prevent decay and help keep gum tissue healthy. A good oral antiseptic rinse and other cleansing aids can help with thorough cleaning. Dental check-ups, healthy foods and limiting sugar and acids from foods and drinks can improve oral care.
