Brighten Your Smile with Better Hygiene Habits

That’s right the best oral health is done at the home. So it’s vital to hone the habits for better results that will make your smile healthier & a shade or two whiter. For improved bacterial & plaque removal, its best to brush a minimum of twice a day using a soft-bristle, manual or electric toothbrush with fluoridated toothpaste. While brushing gently position the toothbrush bristles at a 45-degree angle toward the gum line and move the toothbrush across the teeth to effectively remove bacterial plaque. Additionally, you should floss a minimum of once a day (usually at night) to further help prevent plaque and food that has accumulated throughout the day. Replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months or as needed. Daily brushing and flossing help to prevent gum disease, painful toothaches, tooth decay, bad breath, and so much more. We also recommend the daily use of mouthrinse.
