Effective tooth brushing for excellent oral health is more than picking up your toothbrush and running it along your teeth for a few minutes. We invite you to consider a few things that may improve your brushing technique and enhance your oral health.

First, choose a soft-bristled toothbrush with a non-slip grip and a head that is about an inch is size. These components of the toothbrush aid in the proper cleaning and care of your teeth and gums.

Second, ensure that your toothbrush remains in pristine shape. Every four months, you should replace your toothbrush with a fresh brush, but you may need to purchase a new one sooner the bristles become worn and frayed.

Third, brush with a fluoride toothpaste so that the fluoride mineral can fortify your teeth against dental problems such as tooth decay. Choosing products approved by the American Dental Association can further enhance your oral health. The ADA signia is only earned by oral hygiene tool that are effective and safe for use.
