Since mouthwash freshen up your feel, but also keeps you free from so many diseases .I would like to recommend you to use Listerine (*consult with your doctor). It is one of the best ever used. It is very effective for pregnant ladies, if used on a regular basis.
Flossing :You need to floss your mouth daily; it will remove the debris that is hidden between the teeth. Daily flossing works efficiently at the point where the tooth brush cannot do anything. You need to rub your tongue as well. In other words, rubbing will make you feel clean about your tongue.
