Oral hygiene
 
*  Use a medium or an electric toothbrush and replace it every three months.
 
*  Brush on all buccal, ligual and palatal surfaces placing the toothbrush at a 45º angle against the gumline in a short circular motion like massaging your gum.
 
*  Brush each time two or three teeth depending on the toothbrush’s length for about 20 seconds.
 
*  Gently brush using an up and down and rolling motion along all of the inner tooth surfaces and brush thoroughly all chewing surfaces as well.
 
*  An effective brushing takes about 5-8 minutes. It is recommended that you brush your tongue as well.
 
*  With an electric toothbrush is pretty much the same procedure, meaning, you have to change the brush head every three months and brush for a minimum of three minutes. In this case, it’s the electric toothbrush that performs the circular motion on its own instead of us.
 
*  When your gums bleed just after brushing, this does not necessarily mean that you have irritated or traumatized the gum but it can be a sign that there is an inflammation and you need to brush it in order to eliminate all bacteria.
 
*  Slide floss up and down against the tooth surface and under the gumline. Floss each tooth thoroughly with a clean section of floss.
 
*  Prefer flossing teeth at night before you go to bed. Curve floss into a C shape against one tooth and gently slide it between your teeth. In case of large teeth gaps, you should use an interdental brush instead.
 
*  You may use a mouthwash recommended by the doctor. Should you use it daily, make absolutely sure it is a liquid solution for everyday use.
