Avoid dental plaque

Posted on January 29th, 2014 No Comments

Plaque build up can occur when proper brushing techniques aren’t used. The following tips can help you maintain optimum dental health!

Using a toothpaste that contains triclosan can help reduce plaque since triclosan helps rid the enamel and gums of harmful bacteria. In addition to brushing teeth with a good toothpaste, dental floss is extremely beneficial to oral health because it can extract food and germs from areas that a toothbrush is unable to clean.

Daily habits like choosing to drink liquids with polyphenols, (green tea and cranberry juice) promotes enamel health. Mostly though, it is crucial to make regular dentist appointments so that dentists can evaluate oral health and perform the necessary hygiene treatments.
