Practicing good oral hygiene can help
you prevent bad breath, gum diseases and tooth decay, but it doesn’t stopped there.

an even higher risk for certain medical concerns like diabetes and
cardiovascular disease. Take these steps to ensure you are practicing proper oral
hygiene Brush, Floss and Rinse. Make sure you are using products that contain
fluoride. The goal is to brush your teeth two times a day for two minutes.
Flossing daily provides another defense to the areas where your toothbrush can’t
reach like between your teeth and your gum line. Inadequate care of these areas
can possibly lead to tooth decay and gum diseases such as periodontal disease.
Last but not least rinse. Rinsing serves as a third defense to eliminate
bacteria that is missed by brushing and flossing alone. Practice good oral
hygiene every day. Follow these tips to ensure that you are keeping a regular
oral health routine. Remember that your oral health affects your overall health
as well. Thanks for joining us and we hope to see you next week.
