Most people like to keep their nails neat and tidy and well-manicured, and it’s a great idea to do the same for your mouth. A mouth manicure ensures it always looks its best. This year, why not use the holidays to overhaul your oral hygiene routine with these three easy tips.
Take Better Care of Your Tongue
Your tongue harbours large amounts of bacteria, contributing to bad breath. Yet, when most people clean their teeth, they neglect to clean their tongue. Some toothbrushes have a built-in tongue scraper, or you can buy a special tongue scraper very inexpensively.
Choose Good Quality Toothpaste
We know there are a plethora of toothpaste brands available, many of which rely on cool branding and packaging. However, all you need is good quality fluoride toothpaste, as fluoride helps to protect your teeth against plaque and tooth decay.
Keep on Flossing
Toothbrushing is great, but it cannot clean between your teeth, and for this, you need dental floss. Daily flossing is the most effective way to clean between your teeth and around the gum line where plaque builds up. Not sure how to floss?
