6 Brushing Tips for a Great Smile

dca-blog_basic-dental-care-blue-man

Simple dental care habits you practice at home are the most important elements in keeping your teeth and gums healthy and enjoying a lifetime of great smiles. When you understand oral hygiene basics, you can spend less time and money on dental procedures and avoid early tooth loss. It’s easy to assume your brushing and flossing habits are correct if you’ve been doing the same things for many years, but you may be unaware of deficiencies in your brushing technique. To keep your oral health on the right track, take a moment to review the following dental care tips.

Brushing Your Teeth: The Basics

Brushing your teeth is the most important element of home dental care. Here are six essential recommendations from the American Dental Association.

  1. Brush at least twice a day.
  2. Slow down and take your time. Spend at least two full minutes brushing all surfaces of your teeth.
  3. Use a high-quality toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles. Your toothbrush should fit inside your mouth comfortably and reach every tooth surface.
  4. Hold your toothbrush at an angle, and target the area where your teeth meet your gums. Brush with gentle, short, back-and-forth strokes.
  5. Rinse your brush with water after use, and store it upright to air dry.
  6. Replace your toothbrush every three to four months or when bristles look worn.

More Dental Care Tips Dentists Recommend

  • Floss daily using about 18 inches of dental floss.
  • Slide the floss gently back and forth between your teeth; curve it against one tooth as it reaches the gum line.
  • To improve your dental care even more, add an antimicrobial rinse to your routine, or invest in an oral irrigation tool.

An Affordable Dentist Can Save Your Smile

Early detection of dental problems can prevent gum disease and tooth loss. See an affordable dentist immediately if you notice symptoms like red, tender gums, bleeding gums, loose teeth, sensitivity, or persistent bad breath.
