Oral hygiene is very important for your smile and oral health. Unfortunately, there are ways you can botch your oral hygiene routine and harm your teeth and gums. It’s important to avoid those techniques and develop the best oral hygiene techniques possible. To help you do so, our dentist, Dr. Frank C. Raymer, is happy to tell you all about some handy oral hygiene tricks. Those tricks are:

-Set a timer while you brush: Did you know brushing less or more than two minutes can negatively affect the smile? Well, it’s true. So, set a timer or listen to your favorite two-minute tune while you brush.

-Use lossing products that are easy to maneuver: The easier the products are to use, the better. This is because it reduces the chances of being rough around the gums. So, feel free to use products like water flossers, flossing picks and more.

-Rinse your mouth: Rinsing with mouthwash can complete the smile-cleaning job, strengthen the teeth and freshen the breath. So, use antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash to rinse daily.
