Sterilization is the process of killing all microorganisms like bacteria, algae, fungi, and spores from the surface of any instruments. A good or sound sterilization practice not only protects the patient but also all the staff who are in the dental team from getting infected or transferring the infection from one person to another. In the medical field, all instruments cannot be disposed off with a single-use. They need to be treated to remove all microorganisms so that they are like new instruments every time you use it on a patient.
People believe in brushing teeth at different times of the day and a different number of times in a day. Hence one may be confused as to how many times and when to brush your teeth.

It is advised to wake up in the morning swish your mouth nicely with water then brush your teeth for approximately 2 minutes.
