Brushing: The Tips You Need to Have an Effective Technique


To help you have the best tooth-brushing technique in Luling, Texas, our Crossroads Dental team has a few 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.

-Make sure to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months or once your toothbrush bristles have become worn out. This is necessary because frayed bristles will not properly clean the smile. Using a worn brush will promote tooth decay and gum disease.

-As you brush, use fluoride toothpaste that has been accepted by the American Dental Association. This product will help you safely and effectively clean the teeth while also strengthening your tooth enamel.

If you do these three things, there is a high chance that you will have an effective and successful tooth-brushing technique.
