Should teeth whitening strips be used before charcoal treatment?


I have been searching all over the web for the perfect step but step daily routine to both achieving and maintaining healthy teeth, while at the same time whitening them with crest professional strips, in a safe and effective manner. Throughout my research, I have discovered a few different things such as fluoride treatments, charcoal treatments, etc etc... But what I really was wondering was in what order to do all of these things? Brush first & floss, whitening strip, fluoride treatment, charcoal? I just don't know what order to do everything in. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated as my teeth deserve a lot of forgotten TLC.

Can understand your concern..

As per your complain maintaining a healthy oral cavity needs a regular care and cleanliness..
The best way to maintain healthy teeth is to brush your teeth with a proper brushing technique twice a day..
It should be followed by flossing after brushing to remove deposits or debris from accumulating in between the teeth and causing decay..
You should also gargle with antiseptic mouthwash twice a day especially after meals..
You should also eat more of chewable hard foods like carrot, apples etc as it has cleaning action on teeth..
As far as charcoal treatment and fluoride treatment is concerned they are not necessary to be done and are needed only if you want teeth whitening..
You can also go for teeth bleaching or using whitening strips but to go for all the treatments is not necessary..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards..
