Is Brushing enough?ellerslie highway dentist cheapest dentist ellerslie

Brushing twice a day removes the build-up of tartar and plague from the teeth and mouth so that you can maintain good oral hygiene. Gingivitis, cavities and gum disease are some of the things that brushing prevents. However brushing alone is not effective in removing all the tartar and plague from your teeth and gums. There are some places where your brush cannot reach, like in-between you teeth. Flossing in combination with brushing is essential for oral hygiene. In addition to this, a mouthwash will give you the added benefit of killing and removing bacteria where your brush and floss cannot reach. Brushing alone is not enough.
