Tips to good oral habit include the following are essential to good healthcare.
Experts advice three minutes brushing of teeth twice a day. Effective brushing must clean each outer tooth surface, inner tooth surface, and the flat chewing surfaces of the back teeth. To clean the outer and inner surfaces, the toothbrush should be held at a 45-degree angle against the gums and moved back and forth in short strokes (not more than one tooth width distance).
To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, the toothbrush should be held vertically and the bristles at the tip (called the toe of the brush) moved gently up and down against each tooth. To clean the chewing surfaces of the large back teeth, the brush should be held flat and moved back and forth.
Finally, the tongue should also be brushed using a back-to-front sweeping motion to remove food particles and bacteria that may sour the breath. Toothbrushes should be replaced every three months. Look for tooth-brushes with soft, nylon, rounded bristles in a size and shape that allows them to reach all tooth surfaces easily.
Flossing after each meal helps prevent gum disease by removing food particles and plaque at below the gum line as well as between teeth
