Q: Proper Oral Care
A: BRUSH with a soft toothbrush. Tip it at a 45 degree angle towards the gumline and brush gently with a short back-and-forth scrubbing motion. Brush just a couple of teeth at a time on the outside, inside, and the chewing surfaces. Then proceed to the next couple of teeth, until all the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws are brushed thoroughly. Also remember to replace your toothbrush every one to two months. Use a fluoride toothpaste to get additional help in preventing cavities.
FLOSS every day with about 18 inches of floss wrapped around your middle fingers and leaving about one or half an inch to work with. Gently pass the floss through the spot where adjacent teeth meet. If you have a tight spot, you may attempt to use a see-saw type of movement to pass the floss through the tight contact point to avoid inadvertently exerting too much force on the gum tissues. Then gently scrap the sides of each tooth scraping away from the gum. Do this for each and every tooth in the mouth. Also, do not forget the back side of your last tooth.
RINSE once a day with a fluoride mouth rinse to freshen your breath and obtain additional protection against cavities.
