Avoiding sugars and smoking that lead to tooth decay is essential. As we all know, regularly dental visits and checkups are necessary to maintain a great dental health. Although it may seem quite easy, brushing the teeth involves positioning the toothbrush at 45 degrees angle, near the gum line. Up and down, back and forth motions need to be done gently, in order to prevent the teeth bleeding. Pay attention to the inside cleaning that includes also the tongue.
