It is recommended to brush your teeth at least twice a day, in the morning and before bed. This helps remove plaque and prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
You should brush your teeth for about two minutes each time. This ensures that you thoroughly clean all surfaces of your teeth and gums.
It is recommended to use a soft-bristled toothbrush that is comfortable for you to hold and use. Replace your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if the bristles become frayed. Using mouthwash can be beneficial as it helps kill bacteria and freshens your breath. However, it should not replace brushing and flossing. Look for a mouthwash that contains fluoride and has the ADA (American Dental Association) seal of approval.
How often should I floss?
Flossing should be done at least once a day. It helps remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth and along the gumline, where a toothbrush cannot reach. It is recommended to visit the dentist every six months for a regular check-up and professional cleaning. However, the frequency may vary depending on your oral health needs. Your dentist can provide personalized recommendations.
