The major problem with erupted wisdom teeth is that they can be tricky to clean. To keep your mouth clean when you have wisdom teeth, be sure to take a small bit of additional time brushing and carefully clean each of the wisdom teeth at the back of your dental arches.
While brushing two times daily is good, it isn’t enough on its own: flossing and rinsing with mouthwash are additional ways to keep your oral cavity clean and healthy. If you are not able to floss your wisdom teeth with traditional floss, think about using a water flosser.
Follow the instructions on your bottle of mouthwash to get the most benefit out of it; don’t forget to look for an ADA seal of approval when purchasing the mouthwash. By brushing, flossing, rinsing with mouthwash and visiting our office for appointments regularly, you’ll be able to keep your oral cavity healthy.
