It is also important that you follow a great at-home teeth cleaning regimen in order to keep your teeth clean and your gums healthy. When teeth gather plaque and tartar on them, this will contribute to dental decay, gingivitis, and gum disease. There are many things to do at home to help keep teeth clean. It is important to brush your teeth several times a day as indicated by our dentist or dental hygienist. You generally do not want to use a toothbrush that is too hard as this can damage your gums. You also want to make sure that you do not brush in a way that will irritate your gums, as this can cause gums to reseed. At our office, the proper tooth brushing technique can be demonstrated for you. It is also important that you floss your teeth so that debris can be removed from between the teeth. This will keep plaque from staying between your teeth, and also keep tartar from developing. There are many different types of mouthwashes available for use as well. Some mouthwashes help to fight gum disease by containing products which will keep your mouth freer of plaque and tartar. Tooth scrapers can also be used to keep your teeth clean. If plaque is allowed to stay on teeth, it will harden and turn into tartar. Tartar is a mineralized substance that tightly adheres to teeth, but can only be removed by a professional teeth cleaning.
