Brushing Your Teeth

Maintaining a healthy smile depends upon keeping your teeth and gums clean with a daily routine of brushing and flossing. According to the recommendations of the American Dental Association, it is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time with a soft bristled toothbrush.

Remember to use a soft bristled toothbrush and apply gentle pressure so as not to cause damage to your teeth or gums. Brushing your teeth with a fluoride containing toothpaste that has been awarded American Dental Association seal of acceptance helps to keep your smile healthy and vibrant. Remember to change your toothbrush every three months or when the bristles are frayed.

To brush your teeth:

  • Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums. While maintaining this angle, move your toothbrush back and forth in short strokes. Make sure to brush along the outsides and insides of the teeth as well as the biting surfaces of the back teeth.
  • To brush behind the upper and lower front teeth, tilt your toothbrush vertically and brush in up and down strokes.
  • It is a good idea to brush your tongue at the completion of your routine to help keep your mouth fresh and clean.
