How to Deep Clean Your Mouth

Everyday cleaning is an important part of keeping your teeth and mouth clean and free of damaging bacteria. Brushing and flossing are the most important weapon against tooth decay, but going the extra mile to give your mouth a full, thorough cleaning can help get rid of tough plaque or other lingering problems.

Thoroughly brush your entire mouth. In addition to the front and back of your teeth, be sure to clean the roof of your mouth, inside your cheeks, and over your tongue.

Use a tongue scraper to gently scrape the surface of your tongue. These inexpensive items can help remove bacteria that’s built up.

Take the opportunity to invest in an electric toothbrush. According to a number of studies, eletric options are more effective at removing plaque from teeth and preventing gingivitis. If you enjoy some fancier tech, some brushes even include a timer to denote when you’ve been brushing for the recommended 2 minutes and monitor how hard you’re brushing.

Using a water irrigation system can help clean under the gum line. Adding antibacterial mouthwash to the small water tank can also help rid your mouth of germs and bacteria.

Visit your dentist for a thorough examination and cleaning. In addition to using specialized tools to remove any plaque, your dentist can also spot any potential problems or cavities.

While daily cleaning is irreplaceable to protect your oral health, regularly deep cleaning any buildup of bacteria and plaque from your mouth can also a long way in preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and other potential problems. If you have any on-going concerns or questions about your teeth, your dentist can offer professional advice that’s specific to you.
