In the end, the real goal of our Raffles Place wisdom tooth removal service is making sure you have a wonderful smile that lasts for the rest of your life. Taking out impacted wisdom teeth so they don’t crowd other molars is just one step.
We always stress that a good dental hygiene routine is invaluable. This kind of regular maintenance keeps your teeth and gums healthy for as long as possible. Here’s a few tips you might overlook in the day to day routines of life.
- Many people think brushing your teeth twice a day is an important part of a good oral hygiene routine. While that’s true, there’s a little more to it than just the frequency of the times you brush. It’s a good idea to hold your toothbrush at a 45° angle so that the bristles get in between the gums and teeth without irritating the point where they meet.
- We always stress the importance of brushing all the different surfaces of your teeth. This is especially true after you’ve undergone Raffles Place wisdom tooth removal. With those impacted back molars gone, you’re enjoying a new lease on a beautiful smile. That’s why you need to concentrate on the biting as well as outer and inner surfaces of each tooth.
- Here’s a few other quick suggestions about brushing your teeth. Funny enough, it’s not always about brushing those pearly whites. Most dentists including our team recommend that you brush your tongue as well to get rid of any unwanted bacteria.
If you can afford it, it’s a good idea to invest in an electric toothbrush. The automated motions of the bristles are an excellent way to make sure that you get into those tiny crevices you might otherwise miss if you brush manually.
The Importance of Flossing
Flossing is also extremely important. It’s the only way to get right between each and every tooth and under the gum line where plaque and bacteria can build up. As you might have already imagined, there’s a technique to flossing that gets the job done the best way. You should use your thumb and forefinger and wrap the floss around these two digits. When you’re going back and forth between your teeth, try and bend the flossinto a c-shape so you are providing maximum cleaning power.
