Having a dental hygiene routine is key in preventing tooth decay and maintaining the health of both your teeth and gums. The first way of maintaining your dental hygiene is to ensure that you are brushing twice a day, therefore you can remove all food, plaque and bacteria remaining in the mouth that can lead to damage of the teeth. When brushing it is important to brush all surfaces of the teeth, and hold the toothbrush at angle towards the gums.
Another important step to ensure is included in your routine is brushing between the teeth daily, prior to brushing, whether this be with floss or interdental brushes to remove caught debris.
