Using the hints below will help you achieve bright and white teeth that you’ll be so proud of you won’t be able to stop smiling. Firstly you’ll need to make sure you are brushing correctly and this means choosing a good quality toothbrush with a good cleaning technique. If you are unsure of what a good cleaning technique is, speak to your dental hygienist who will be able to help you with that. A good toothbrush should feel comfortable in your hand and have soft bristles. The brush should have a small enough brush head so that brushing all surfaces of the teeth is done easily. It is really important to floss your teeth and this should be done at least once a day; doing this will help to remove all the plaque and debris from in between your teeth. There are many different types of floss but try to choose one that is waxed as this type of floss will move in between the teeth much easier. You can also find dental flossers which make flossing much easier than with regular floss. Achieving sparkly white teeth won’t be possible without good toothpaste so it is important you know what to look for. Try to find toothpaste which has natural ingredients and try to avoid toothpastes which contain sodium lauryl sulfate or any toothpaste which carry a health warning on them. If you follow the above tips you’re on the right track to excellent oral hygiene and achieving that perfect smile. In addition to the above tips it may be a good idea to use mouth wash as this will help to kill of bad bacteria in your mouth. Again try to find a product with natural ingredients and avoid mouthwashes with nasty sounding, unpronounceable ingredients. Using a good tongue scraper will also help with keeping bad bacteria from colonising on your tongue.
