      People suffer from the issue of bad breath because of improper brushing. I would recommend twice a day brushing and use of mouth wash after meals.Dr Sanjay Kumar Consultant Dental Surgeon

      Cavities are developed due to dietary habits, eating a lot of sugary and sticky food, not cleansing after that and not taking care of your oral hygiene.Dr Shalini DuaDental Surgeon, Founder & MD Sanare Medical PVT. LTD
    • Dr Neera Kumar
      Brushing should be done twice daily - after breakfast and dinner for two minutes and it should be followed by mouth wash. Mouth wash should be used for 15-20 seconds and after spitting the mouth wash, one should avoid rinsing it with water by another 5 minutes.Dr Neera KumarConsultant Surgeon
    • Dr Subik Nagi
      Brush properly with the correct technique, brushing in a rush and incorrectly is as bad as not brushing. Brush twice a day and with the right technique. Clean your tongue after brushing, drink a lot of water and be mindful of what you eat. Dr Subik NagiDental Surgeon and Implantologist

    Myth Busters

    Mouthwash Can Replace Brushing
    That’s a myth. Only brushing is capable of getting rid of plaque that builds up on teeth. Mouthwash is a chemical method and should be accompanied along with brushing, says Dr Abhishek Bhardawaj, Consultant Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon
    All Mouthwashes Are The Same
    It is a myth. According to Dr Palash R Sharma, Dental Surgeon, Director Fortino Dental, different mouthwashes are for different utility and purposes.
    Fluoride Is Not Good In Toothpaste or Mouthwash
    It is a myth. It is an important ingredient, it prevents toothaches & slows down the acid production of bacteria, says Dr Sandeep Preenja, Consultant Dental Surgeon.
    Brushing Cleans Entire Mouth 
    No, it does not. It is a common myth, says Dr Neha Sachdeva, Prosthodontist & Oral Implantologist. She adds, “Either use a good mouth wash or rinse your mouth after every meal so that you are maintaining a god oral hygiene.”
    Dentist Visits Are Required Only When Facing An Oral Problem
    It is a myth. Dr Sanjay Kumar, Consultant Dental Surgeon says one should visit a dentist every six months.
    Mouthwash Only For People With Bad Breath
    It is wrong to say that, says Dr Subik Nagi, Dental Surgeon & Implantologist. He says that mouthwash reduces plaque and bacteria in the mouth and helps to maintain good oral hygiene.
