Abstract

Abstract

Brushing your teeth twice daily helps to remove the plaque and food particles between the teeth and helps to maintain optimal oral health.

Keeping Your Teeth Clean !!!

Antimicrobial mouth rinses and toothpastes reduce the bacterial count and inhibit bacterial activity in dental plaque, which can cause gingivitis, an early, reversible form of periodontal (gum) disease.

Fluoride mouth rinses help reduce and prevent tooth decay. Clinical studies have demonstrated that use of a fluoride mouth rinse and fluoride toothpaste can provide extra protection against tooth decay over that provided by fluoride toothpaste alone. Fluoride mouth rinse is not recommended for children age six or younger because they may swallow the rinse. Consumers should always check the manufacturer's label for precautions and age recommendations and talk with their dentist about the use of fluoride mouth rinse.

Talk to dentist what types of oral care products will be most effective for you.

Replace your toothbrush every three or four months or sooner if the bristles are frayedTweet this
