Brushing your teeth depends on making sure you are brushing effectively. Not only should you be using durable tools that can easily accomplish the necessary task, but it’s important that you are employing the proper techniques to clean all areas in your mouth to ensure a deep clean occurs.

The first thing you will need to do is select the toothbrush that has soft bristles. Once you have your toothbrush, make sure you are brushing your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes each session. Always make sure to take your time and your small gentle strokes. Be sure to clean the inner outer and chewing surfaces of teeth. Furthermore, brush your teeth at a 45-degree angle except for your front teeth which you should brush vertically. Don’t forget to clean off your tongue as it can often hold and house bacteria. To clean between teeth, and intraductal cleaner such as a dental floss will be needed. For additional help keeping your smile clean, visit for a bi-annual professional cleaning.
