Brushing Your Teeth
The daily routine of brushing and flossing is essential in maintaining a healthy smile and stronger teeth and gums. The American Dental Association recommends people brush at least two times a day. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and brush appropriately for two minutes each time. Only gentle pressure should be applied while brushing to prevent damage to teeth or gums. Instead of using any toothpaste, ensure that you use fluoride-containing toothpaste that has the seal of acceptance from the American Dental Association. Thus brushing using fluoride-containing toothpaste can help keep your smile healthy and vibrant. Replace your toothbrush with a new toothbrush every three months.
