3. A Proper Oral Hygiene Routine
Another great way to prevent gum disease is proper oral hygiene. Establishing a daily routine is the best way to start. Your Anchorage dentist will encourage you to brush your teeth at least twice a day. Plus, don’t forget to floss! Flossing removes food stuck between your teeth that your brush can’t. Another important step is a mouthwash rinse. This helps to rid smaller particles from your mouth, which reduces the risk of plaque build-up.
You can take this routine further by brushing, flossing, and rinsing after each meal. Simply carry a travel bag with a small-sized toothbrush, floss, and mouthwash in your purse, car, or leave it at work. It’s not only great to do this for your teeth and gums, but your breath will always smell minty fresh.
