Daily Routine:

  1. Be sure to brush your teeth for at least two minutes, taking 30 seconds for each of the four quadrants of the mouth.
  2. Don’t forget to brush your tongue and your gums. Just like your teeth, these two areas can harbor bacteria.
  3. No oral health routine is complete without flossing. Floss between every tooth, all the way down to the edge of the gum line at least once a day.
  4. Finally, use an ADA-approved mouthwash.
