3 TIPS FOR A HEALTHY MOUTH

Brushing teeth is so routine, it can be easy to fall into bad habits. These tips, along with regular appointments, can help your teeth and gums stay healthy and strong!

BRUSH 2X2

In order to keep away plaque and gingivitis, brushing once a day won’t cut it! You should brush at least twice a day, for two minutes at a time, to keep away harmful bacteria.

BE GENTLE!

On the other hand, brushing more than three times a day, too hard, can damage enamel and put a strain on your gums. If you feel any tooth or gum pain while brushing, come see us.

TONGUE CARE

Your tongue can be a repository for plaque and other harmful bacteria. While you’re in there, give it a good brushing! It will keep your breath fresh and your mouth healthy!
