It’s best to have the best brushing technique and routine possible. This is because brushing is very important for your smile and oral health. Brushing can wash bacteria away and help you have strong and healthy teeth and gums. If you have an improper routine, your smile can suffer the consequences. So, our dentist, Dr. Carey Norton, is happy to help you have the best brushing routine possible by giving you some tips:

-Brush twice a day. As you do so, make sure to brush for two minutes each time. Make sure not to brush less or more than the two minutes because it can harm the teeth and gums.

-Brush with top-notch tools, like a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. The toothbrush will thoroughly clean the teeth and keep the gums healthy and strong while the fluoride will soak into the tooth enamel and strengthen it, which can help you prevent cavities.

-Manual and electric toothbrushes are both effective when cleaning the smile. When choosing between the two tools, your preference is all that matters.

-Avoid rinsing your mouth with water immediately after you brush. Rinsing with water will wash the fluoride toothpaste away before it has enough time to fully strengthen your teeth.
