We are not going to bore you by droning on about the importance of brushing and flossing regularly, yet again. You likely already know how vital it is to keep your pearly whites clean.
That said, even if you are putting in your two minutes, twice a day, you may be compromising your oral health. How?
Many focus solely on their teeth. The problem is that the rest of the mouth requires a good scrub too!
Here is a quick guide to making sure that you are not accidentally ignoring certain areas,
You may want to start by reaching for the floss and going to town, so as to dislodge left-behind food particles. Feel free to follow this up with a mouthwash swishing session, if you are so inclined.
Next, brush your tongue. Some like to also utilize a tongue-scraper at this point.
Do your regular brushing routine, ensuring that you’re reaching all the nooks and crannies.
Devote some time to your gums! Be careful not to apply too much pressure though. Easy does it.
Spend a few seconds on the roof of your mouth. You’d be shocked to learn how often people completely overlook this, actually. Again, no need to go crazy; use a light touch.
