Did you know that someone who brushes and flosses well does not need to use any mouth rinse?
You should be brushing twice a day, morning and night, using a small, soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste. You should aim to have half of the brush on your tooth and half on your gums, as the gumline is the area where soft plaque usually develops.
Brushing at night is particularly important as any bits of food or debris that is left overnight in your mouth gives decay the perfect opportunity to develop.
