As you may already know, brushing your teeth is extremely important. So, it’s vital that you have the proper tools and techniques so you can safely and effectively clean your smile. To help you, our Express Dental Care team has some recommendations for you! Those recommendations are:

-Brush your teeth twice a day. While you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush that fits perfectly in your mouth. We also recommend using a brush that has a non-slip grip. That way you won’t have any trouble reaching the hard-to-reach areas of the 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, make sure to use fluoride toothpaste that has been accepted by the American Dental Association.

If you do these things, you’ll be on your way to a beneficial tooth-brushing technique in Lynnwood, Washington! Now remember, brushing is not the only important technique needed in your oral hygiene routine. You also need to floss and rinse at least once a day.
