Oral hygiene is a very important practice for our overall well-being. Oral hygiene has regular brushing of the teeth and cleaning between the teeth. It helps to prevent dental disease and bad breath.

It is important to brush your teeth after every meal, at least before sleep and after breakfast, and also clean your tongue because our tongue also absorbs food. Interdental cleaning is also essential because our toothbrushes cannot reach between the teeth and need floss, and tape also to hygiene your mouth. If you really need a fresh breath and disease-free mouth use miswak at least five times a day, it’s the safest and most effective way to prevent oral disease. Dental plaque and calculus are the sources of dental problems. Regular brushing removes the plaque also known as dental biofilm and long-term plaque makes calculus, to remove calculus you need a dental professional. Sugar, chewing gum, ice, alcohol, and smoking cause tooth damage. Some home remedies are used for mouthwash like salty water, essential oils, and chlorhexidine gluconate.
