Children need to be educated how to brush their teeth, which is the beginning of dental care. The best way to remove plaque is by brushing and cleaning between your teeth every day.
This is where dental health starts. There is just no substitute for physically removing disease causing dental plaque and calculus, especially in the hard to reach areas near the gum-line.
In the clinic, professional cleaning removes accumulated plaque and calculus that has formed. Also, it can easy to spot early gum disease. Early detection is the key to reversing damage to gums, underlying bone, preventing tooth loss, and avoiding the need for more extensive treatment.
Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle against the gums. Move the brush back and forth gently in short (tooth-wide) strokes. Brush the outer tooth surfaces, the inner tooth surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Use the tip of the brush to clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, using a gentle up-and-down stroke.
Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.
