The Tips You Need to Have an Effective Tooth-Brushing Technique

October 11, 2016

Do you want the best smile possible? If so, it’s best to brush your teeth with the most effective tools and techniques!

To help you have the best tooth-brushing routine in Victoria, TX, our Victoria Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics 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. However, we recommend replacing the brush sooner if the bristles are worn down or frayed. A shabby toothbrush won’t properly clean your smile.

-Use fluoride toothpaste that has been accepted by the American Dental Association when you brush. The fluoride will help strengthen your tooth enamel and the ADA Seal of Acceptance will help you know that you are using a safe and effective tool.

If you would like to learn more about the tools and techniques needed for brushing, please feel free to call our office today at (361) 433-4704! We also encourage you to schedule an appointment with your dentist, Dr. Manshadi, Dr. Roden-Johnson, and Dr. Afridi, if you would like a demonstration on the proper way to brush your chompers. We are here to help you in any way we can, and we look forward to hearing from you!
