So, of course this is what the American Dental Association (or ADA) recommends for dental hygiene:
Clean your teeth twice day with an ADA - recognized fluoride tooth paste. Anything will do, Colgate, Crest, etc… Upgrade everyone’s tooth brush each 12 to 16 weeks, or possibly earlier in the event the brush bristles are really damaged or worn out. A damaged toothbrush can’t do a particularly good job cleaning your teeth (or anybody’s really).
Clean between the teeth every day with the help of floss and / or an inter-dental machine. Dental decay - triggered by harmful bacteria still stay between teeth wherever brush hair isn’t able to access. This will help to take off the gooey film around teeth called plaque as well as food dirt from between your teeth or under the gumline.
Have a healthy and balanced eating habits and also limit between - scheduled meal treats.
See your tooth doctor frequently to get professional washings and dental assessments.
