Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Brushing at night before sleeping could be a task but you have to, in order to be a tooth brushing champion

Flossing can be confusing if you are a beginner but you should floss in between your teeth as it helps keep your gums clean.

DO NOT take tooth pain or bleeding gums lightly as oral health is very closely related to overall well being of the body.

As dentists we recommend you to get your routine dental check up done every 6 months irrespective of any symptoms or not
