It would be a pretty safe gamble that most of us in the city of Leeds would consider a quick brush over in the morning and last thing at night, enough to keep the demons away from our teeth and gums. Well that could be a stake too far; caring for your teeth is not just about the brush. A big old brush will sort out the surface of the teeth, but it will not get into the places where the real terrors lurk, like between the teeth and around the gum line. Let’s not undermine brushing, but it is important to take oral hygiene to the next level. Food gets stuck in all areas of the mouth and a standard toothbrush will not do the job. Dental flosses have been a godsend in this area as you can weave the tape in the darkest areas of the mouth and remove all of the things that could cause you major complications in the future. Another back-up is inter-dental brushes- tiny little things that can slip between your teeth and remove any residue of food that may have embedded themselves. And finally, once you have done all of the above, there is nothing better than to throw a mouthwash into your mouth to rinse away any lingering problems.
