Prevention of dental problems is duly recommended in order to stop the increasing number of oral diseases. Commonly, some oral complications can be avoided through good oral habits. There are several ways how to take care of the mouth effectively particularly the teeth.

On top of every dental problem prevention is brushing the teeth twice daily. It is being recommended to use a soft toothbrush because it is able to flex and reach the curb side of the tooth. Do this for about 2 minutes per brushing. Meanwhile hard or firm tooth brush can harm the protective coating of the teeth making it dull and rough. Over tooth brushing and hard toothbrush causes the gum to bleed. Certain mouthwash use helps wash away the cavities that are attached on the gums and teeth making it clearer. Food debris that is caught in spaces between the teeth can be removed by dental flossing.
