Begin brushing in the back of the mouth and follow the same course each time. Creating a standard routine for brushing helps you build good habits.
Make sure you use this brushing routine after every meal, or at least twice a day. Brushing should take you about two minutes, if done properly.
Flossing is one of the most important things you can do to protect the health of your teeth and gums.
Flossing is to remove plaque and food particles from areas a toothbrush is unable to reach, so focus on your gum line and between your teeth during the process.
Avoid Teeth Grinding:
Tooth grinding occurs when you gnash your upper and lower rows of teeth together. If you are someone who grinds, try to be aware of the action throughout the day.
Stretch and hold your mouth open for several seconds to release the tension. You can do this at bedtime and several times throughout the day.
