You have likely heard advice that you should be brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing. This is common dental treatment. However, this is only the start.
There are plenty of other little pieces of advice that could prevent some major pain and headaches in the future. In this video, you will learn about some of these pieces of advice.
The first piece of advice you should know is that your teeth are not the only thing you should be paying attention to. For example, your tongue is often forgotten during the dental cleaning process. However, bacteria can grow on your teeth if not treated properly. To avoid bacteria growth on your tongue, you should brush your tongue with your toothbrush daily. Some toothbrushes even have a textured backside of the head specifically for brushing your tongue. It really is that simple.
When you brush, it is important to also be brushing at a 45 degree angle towards your gums. Many adults have gum disease. This is mostly because people don’t realize that the gums need to be brushed as well. Brushing at a 45 degree angle will fix this issue.
