If you want a strong, healthy, and beautiful smile, then you need to have a pristine oral hygiene routine. As you may already know, brushing is one of the most important techniques in your routine, which is why it’s vital to have the best brushing tools and techniques possible. To help you, our Michael R. Mullen D.D.S. dentist and team have some recommendations for you. Those recommendations are:

-Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. The soft bristles will deeply clean your teeth and care for your gums. We also recommend using a brush that is the perfect size and shape for your mouth. That way the hard-to-reach areas will be easier to clean.

-Make sure to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months. However, we recommend replacing the brush sooner if the bristles are worn down or frayed. A shabby toothbrush won’t properly clean your smile.

-As you brush, use fluoride toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association. The fluoride will strengthen your tooth enamel and give it the ability to fight harmful particles, and the Seal of Acceptance will help you know you have a safe and effective product.

While you do these things, it’s also important to floss and rinse at least once a day.
