What are good dental habits to have?

  • It is absolutely necessary to brush your teeth at least twice a day and for 2 minutes.
  • Toothbrushing is as important for adults as it is for children.
  • Brushing your teeth helps remove food residue and dental plaque.
  • The latter can cause cavities as well as gum disease.

The front, back and chewing surfaces of all teeth should be brushed.

  • It is strongly recommended to use a fluoridated toothpaste, no need to spread it all over the brush, a dose the size of a chickpea is enough.
  • Fluoride helps fight cavities by strengthening teeth.
  • Do not rinse your mouth excessively after brushing to conserve fluoride, simply spit out the toothpaste and rinse your mouth with a small dose of water.

Above all, remember to change your toothbrush every 2 months, at most 3 so as not to damage your gums and scratch your enamel.

  • You must use dental floss at least once a day to remove food residues that remain stuck between the teeth, which ferment and turn into tartar and inflame the gums.
  • Regular application of dental floss helps reduce the risk of periodontal disease and, above all, greatly reduces bad breath.
  • Avoid the use of wooden or plastic toothpicks which are a huge trauma to the gums.
  • Outside, if you cannot brush your teeth, chew SUGAR-FREE chewing gum to clean your teeth as little as possible.

With awareness among every adult, we will be able to reduce periodontal disease in future generations for better oral hygiene worldwide.
