Use a soft to medium toothbrush and a good quality toothpaste to brush your teeth.
Take toothpaste in small amount, nearly that of a pea size.
Use “up – down” movements to clean your teeth. Do not brush in horizontal motion.
Stand in front of a mirror when you brush in order to see whether all the areas are being cleaned or not.
Never forget to brush your tongue after brush your teeth.
Toothbrush or a tongue cleaner can be used for this purpose.
Rinse your mouth thoroughly after brushing.
Smoking, chewing Pan masala, eating betel nuts are all injurious to teeth and have a deleterious effect on oral as well as general health of a person.
Avoid eating sweet and sticky foods such as sweets, chocolates, chips, biscuits etc. between meals. Always rinse after eating.
Always consult a dentist if you see a black spot or a cavity in your teeth. Don’t wait for pain to occur.
