Written by bfcdental on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 2:25 AM

We all need to practice a good oral hygiene in order to keep our teeth healthy and functioning. Here are the few important things to know about the oral health.
Plaque
Plaque is nothing but accumulated bacteria that causes cavities and gingivitis leading to gum diseases. Many of the food that we eat can cause bacteria to release acids that get accumulated in the form of a sticky material. Sugary foods are the main causes of Plaque; hence, it is advised to always brush the teeth after consuming sugary foods. Plaque can lead to the gum diseases which eventually can destroy teeth.
Preventing Plaque
The best way to restrain plaque from destroying your teeth is by brushing properly. A soft-bristled brush can be used twice per day to clean the teeth. An antimicrobial toothpaste containing Fluoride should be used to prevent the decay.
Brushing and Flossing tips
There is a proper way of brushing your teeth recommended by the dentists. The brush has to be kept at a 45-degree angle against the gums and brush should be moved back and forth in short strokes. You should also brush your tongue daily to remove the bacteria and freshen up your breath.
While flossing use the gentle rubbing motion and hold the floss tightly. Clean the sides of the teeth gently using up and down motion.
