How to Clean Your Teeth and Gums


Clean Your Teeth and Gums

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Here are some steps to follow for effective teeth and gum cleaning:

Brushing Technique

  • Use a soft-bristle toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gums.
  • Gently brush back and forth in short strokes, covering all surfaces of your teeth.
  • Pay extra attention to the gumline, where plaque tends to accumulate.
  • Brush the outer, inner, and chewing surfaces of your teeth.
  • Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.


  • Take about 18 inches (45 cm) of dental floss and wrap it around your middle fingers, leaving a few inches of floss in between.
  • Hold the floss tightly between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Gently insert the floss between your teeth, using a back-and-forth motion.
  • Curve the floss around each tooth in a C-shape and glide it up and down to remove plaque and debris.
  • Use a clean section of floss for each tooth.


  • Rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash after brushing and flossing.
  • Swish the mouthwash around your mouth for the recommended time (usually 30 seconds to 1 minute).
  • Spit out the mouthwash and avoid eating or drinking for 30 minutes afterward.

Regular Dental Check-ups

  • Schedule regular dental visits for professional cleanings and examinations.
  • Your dentist can detect early signs of gum disease or other oral health issues and provide appropriate treatment.

Additional Tips

  • Avoid smoking and tobacco products, as they contribute to gum disease and tooth discoloration.
  • Limit your consumption of sugary foods and drinks, as they can promote tooth decay.
  • Maintain a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables.
  • Drink plenty of water to keep your mouth hydrated and wash away food particles.

Remember to follow these steps consistently, brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day. If you have any specific concerns or dental conditions, consult your dentist for personalized advice and recommendations.
