ADA’s Recommendations for Maintaining Good Oral Hygiene

According to the ADA, there are certain things that one must do to maintain good oral hygiene. Firstly, it is necessary to replace your toothbrush at least once every three months. If the bristles of your toothbrush become frayed, you must replace the toothbrush sooner. This is important because a frayed toothbrush will not be effective in cleaning your teeth properly. Secondly, when it comes to oral hygiene, it is vital that you use an interdental cleaner or floss every day. A failure to do this will allow bacteria that cause tooth decay to linger on the areas of the teeth that toothbrushes simply can’t reach. By flossing, you can remove bacteria, food particles and plaque from under the gum line and from between the hard to reach spaces on your teeth.
