Beside brushing minimum two minutes thoroughly twice a day and flossing daily is recommended. In mean time one should not forget that excessive brushing or scrubbing hard is also bad for teeth. Many of us like brushing but hate flossing. More than 50% of plaque accumulation occurs between the protected areas of teeth. Some people suffer from sensitive or bleeding gums and make this as a reason to avoid flossing. They feel flossing of sensitive teeth or bleeding gums will make them worse. But in fact, flossing can improve the health of gums and thereby helping to prevent them from bleeding.  Start flossing by using inter-dental brushes which are like an alternative to floss and then switch to proper flossing your teeth.  Antibacterial mouth rinse will help achieving protection from bacteria for some time.
