While most people have mastered the habit of brushing twice daily, not many pay attention to all the right places. Areas like the tongue, gums, molars and the back of your front and incisor teeth are commonly missed.
Like the rest of your mouth, your tongue houses bacteria that can cause bad breath. Aim to clean your tongue each time you brush, moving gently from the back to the front.
Plaque can also build up around your gumline and behind your teeth. Taking extra time to brush those places reduces your risk of cavities and gum disease.
