Regular brushing is essential to maintaining good oral health. We recommend brushing your teeth twice daily for approximately three minutes – half of this time should be spent on your top teeth, and the other half on the bottom. We recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush, and changing it every three months to avoid damaged, ineffective bristles. Electric toothbrushes may be also recommended as they have been proven more effective than manual brushing.
Flossing is critical too! Regular flossing helps prevent plaque build-up, and catches sneaky bits of food that are caught between the teeth. Both flossing and brushing are excellent methods to avoid serious issues such as gum disease and cavities. Water and air flossers may be recommended in addition to manual flossing.
