Brushing Care

Brush your teeth at least twice a day (especially before going to bed at night) with an ADA-approved soft bristle brush and toothpaste.

  • Place the brush at a 45 degree angle to the gums and gently brush using a small, circular motion, ensuring that you always feel the bristles on the gums.
  • Brush the outer, inner, and biting surfaces of each tooth.
  • Use the tip of the brush to clean the inside of the front teeth.
  • Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and to freshen your breath.

Electric toothbrushes are also recommended. They are easy to use and can efficiently remove plaque. Simply place the bristles of the electric brush on your gums and teeth and allow the brush to do its job, several teeth at a time.

Gum Care

Healthy gums are not only the best protection against periodontal disease but also the framework of your smile.

Flossing

The use of dental floss is essential in minimizing gum disease and other oral health problems resulting from the build-up of dental plaque.

Oral Health

In most cases, if your gums and teeth are healthy, the American Dental Association recommends 6-month check-ups.
