Do you want an effective brushing routine? If so, our dentist, Dr. Ami Desai, is more than happy to help you! It’s best to have a brushing routine that thoroughly and effectively cleans the smile. Fortunately, there are things you can do to have the best brushing routine possible, and he is happy to tell you all about them. Those things are:

-Brush twice a day for two minutes each time. Brushing longer or less than two minutes can harm your smile.

-Brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. The soft bristles will care for your gums and thoroughly clean your teeth. The fluoride toothpaste will clean and strengthen your tooth enamel.

-Brush with an electric toothbrush if you are more motivated to brush that way. Also, brush an electric toothbrush if you suffer from gum recession or if you need more structure when scrubbing.

-Avoid rinsing your mouth with water after brushing. Doing so can allow the fluoride toothpaste to further strengthen the tooth enamel.
