Whether you believe it or not, brushing is one of the most important tasks in your oral hygiene routine. This is why it is vital to have the best tools and techniques possible. So, to help you have a pristine brushing technique, our Forestwood Dental dental team has some recommendations for you. Those recommendations are:

-Scrub your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Make sure the brush is the perfect size and shape for your smile. We recommend having a brush that has a one-inch head and a non-slip grip to help you reach all areas of your mouth easily.

-Make sure to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months or once your toothbrush bristles have frayed. A worn-out toothbrush will not effectively clean your teeth and gums, which will increase your chances of having tooth decay and gum disease.

-As you brush, use fluoride toothpaste that has been accepted by the American Dental Association. This product will help you safely and effectively clean the teeth while also strengthening your tooth enamel.

If you do these three things, you will be on the right track toward an effective tooth-brushing technique in Spring, Texas. We also encourage you to remember that it’s best to floss and rinse in addition to your brushing technique. If you would like to learn more, or if you have any questions, please feel free to call our office at 281-547-0837 and talk to your dentist, Dr. Ngocmai D. Nguyen, or a member of our dental team. We are more than happy to help you in any way we can, and we look forward to your phone call!
