Brushing is only helpful if you do it properly. However, many people aren't exactly sure how to brush. If you're one of these people, our Artistic Denture & Dental team is more than happy to help you!

Brushing is quite simple and easy. Once you get the hang of it, you will have a clean and pristine smile each day. As you brush, make sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. It's also recommended to use tools that have been approved by the American Dental Association and to brush your teeth at least twice a day.

To help you have the best brushing technique possible, we recommend using these steps:

Step 1: As you clean your smile, hold your brush at a 45-degree angle to the gums. Then, gently move the brush back and forth, in short, tooth-wide strokes.

Step 2: Thoroughly clean the smile by brushing the inner, outer, and chewing surface of each tooth. To clean the inside surface, hold the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes.

Step 3: Don't forget to brush your tongue after you've brushed your teeth. Brushing your tongue will remove bacteria and freshen your breath.
