No-one would deny the benefits of brushing your teeth with a good brush and paste in Leeds, as it is essential to remove any bacteria from the surfaces of your teeth left by food and drink, thus preventing and outbreak of plaque. However, brushes are not the tool to use to get in deep and personal with your teeth; they are just too big and clumsy to get inside intricate areas like between the teeth and around the gums. This is why it is important to back up your brushing with flossing. Dental floss is cheap to buy and you will find it in most major outlets, but you need to find one that suits your teeth, so try a few out first until you are happy because they come in many sizes and guises; you can even buy some floss that is already set up on small harps- again you can buy a bag of these for peanuts. Once you are ready to go, you now have to learn how to weave the floss between your teeth and up around your gums. One of the best ways to do this is to practise in front of the mirror over and over again until you can do it with your eyes shut. Flossing will remove foodstuffs that get lodged in these tricky areas and prevent the build up of plaque and tartar and if you finish all of this off with a plaque-busting mouthwash, you will be on top of your oral hygiene game.
