Oral hygiene is an important part of your health at any age. The best way to keep your
smile in shape is by brushing and flossing at least once a day, following a sensible diet
and scheduling regular visits to your dentist for a checkup and professional cleaning.
• As much as 50% of the bacteria in your mouth
is present on your tongue, so be sure to brush it.
Proper tooth brushing takes at least two
minutes. The best technique for cleaning your
teeth is to angle your toothbrush toward the
gum line and move it in a circular motion with
light pressure, taking care to clean all surfaces.
• Toothbrushes should be replaced every three
months to avoid excessive bacteria buildup.
• A soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head is
the best type to use.

The best time to floss is right before you go to
bed. Floss teeth in a gentle zig-zag motion.
Contour the floss around the side of each tooth
and slide it up and down against the tooth surface
and under the gum line. Be sure to floss each
tooth with a clean section of floss.
