some of their best years. During the excitement and chaos, it is important to maintain health habits, including good oral hygiene. Neglecting your dental health during your college years can have long-term consequences on both your well-being and even your finances. By taking care of your teeth and establishing good oral hygiene habits during your younger years, you can avoid potential health issues and save yourself from expensive dental procedures down the road.
Brushing your teeth twice a day as well as regular daily flossing is your way to actively maintain the health of your teeth and gums. It is important to remove the plaque and bacteria to help prevent cavities and gingivitis. Make sure to use a fluoride containing toothpaste to help strengthen enamel and promote remineralization of incipient cavities. Another beneficial habit is to use a soft bristled toothbrush using what is called the modified bass technique to be effective in removing plaque as well as preventing abrasion of your enamel.
