Do you want a top-notch smile and oral health? If so, you need to have a top-notch brushing routine. Now, there’s more to brushing than scrubbing your chompers back and forth. In fact, there are good habits you can pick up that can help you have the best brushing routine possible. Our dentist, Dr. Dido Kim, is happy to list those habits, which are:

-Use the right toothbrush (It’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush because the bristles clean your teeth and care for your gums)

-Use a toothbrush that has been approved by the American Dental Association (This ADA stamp of approval means the toothbrush is safe and effective)

-Brush your teeth every morning and night for two minutes each time (Brushing more or less can harm your teeth and gums and even alter your oral health)

-Use a gentle motion as you brush (Brushing roughly can irritate the gums and make them recede, which means they move away from the teeth, expose the roots, and even cause sensitivity)
