As you may already know, brushing is an important part of your oral hygiene routine. It’s very important to make sure you have the right tools and technique as you brush. So, to help you have the best tooth-brushing technique in Bryan, Texas, our Safari Dental team and dentist recommend doing the following things:
-Brush your teeth twice a day. While you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush that fits nicely in your mouth. The soft bristles will help you effectively clean your teeth and care for your gums, and the nice fit will help you easily clean the hard-to-reach places of your mouth.
-Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months, or sooner if the bristles are worn out or frayed. Brushing with a shabby toothbrush will not completely clean your teeth and will also promote tooth decay and gum disease.
-As you brush, use fluoride toothpaste. The fluoride will strengthen your tooth enamel and give it the ability to fight off harmful substances. We also recommend using a paste that has been approved by the American Dental Association. That way you will be using a safe and effective tool.
