The purpose of this study is to propose active oral dentistry prevention in dentist's office. For this purpose, literature on oral diseases was briefly reviewed. A total of 75% of the oral cavity cannot be cleaned even if it is managed hard by brushing. Therefore, it is possible to manage the oral health of a lifetime by finishing cleanly without using the toothbrush. Dentists should encourage their patients to identify and characterize the various characteristics of various mouthwashes currently on the market. The tooth coloring presented in the existing textbooks is no longer a problem. Also, considering the fact that the frequency of using oral appliances is very low compared to advanced countries, Koreans now want dentists to remind patients about the importance of prevention as a part of their care. In conclusion, I recommend 123 exercise as a method of using dental floss once a day, using 2 gauze agents, and 3 times of gauze for patients visiting preventive dentistry. Good lifestyle habits lead to a lifelong oral health. On the other hand, the author likes to change the habits of brushing habits. It is no longer 333 movement, but 123 movement, brushing within one minute, brushing over 2 minutes, brushing 3 times a day.
