Brushing

Brushing is considered the most important part of your dental care routine to achieve a healthy mouth and smile. Most dentists and ADA recommend the following:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush, which can reach all areas of the mouth easily.
  • Toothbrush should be replaced every 2-3 months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A frayed toothbrush will not cleaning your teeth good.
  • Always use fluoride toothpaste.

Technique:

Toothbrush should be placed at a 45-degree angle to the gingiva, then short back and forth strokes should be used to clean tooth by tooth. It is important to brush all surfaces of all teeth, which include outer, inner and chewing surfaces. It is also very important to supplement regular tooth brushing with flossing.

It is important to clean between teeth daily with floss, as toothbrush bristles can’t reach these spots. This helps remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.

Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
