Another good habit is to drink plenty of water and especially drink a glass of water after each meal. A lot of the foods we consume are acidic and can weaken he enamel of your teeth. The water will help neutralize the pH in your mouth and rinse away some of the food debris. You want to wait 30-45 mins after that to brush your teeth.
As Ambassador Spock would say, “Live Long, Floss Often”
(1) Floss your teeth DAILY.
(2) Use a Waterpik water flosser at least once daily. It's an easy, but effective way to improve cleaning your teeth & improve your gingival health.
(3) Rinse with full-strength Listerine for 1-2 minutes after completing your oral hygiene regime. Listerine helps to kill the bacteria that cause gingival inflammation & infections.
