​Brushing Tune up!

Brushing your teeth regularly is essential for keeping them healthy and preventing gum diseases. But it's not just about brushing; it's also about choosing the right toothbrush and using proper techniques.

Choosing a Toothbrush:

  • Pick a toothbrush that feels comfortable in your hand and mouth.
  • Look for soft bristles and the right size brush head for your mouth.
  • Whether it's manual or powered, choose one that's easy for you to use.

Brushing Your Teeth Effectively:

  • Brush at least twice a day for at least two minutes each time.
  • Angle your toothbrush toward your gums when brushing along the gum-line.
  • Be gentle to avoid hurting your gums.
  • Clean every tooth surface thoroughly, including your tongue.
  • Rinse your toothbrush after each use and replace it every three to four months.
  • If you're unsure, ask your dentist to show you the proper brushing technique.

Remember, brushing alone isn't enough. Use dental floss daily to clean between your teeth, and don't forget to see your dentist regularly for checkups.
