So, to help you find the answers, our dentist is happy to share the answers to the following commonly asked questions about brushing:
Q: How often should I brush?
A: It’s best to brush your teeth twice a day, like every morning and every night. As you brush, it’s best to scrub for two minutes and try to brush each quadrant of the mouth equally.
Q: What tools should I use to brush?
A: It’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth. This is recommended because a soft-bristled toothbrush can clean the teeth and care for the gums and the fluoride toothpaste can strengthen the teeth, helping you avoid cavities and enamel erosion.
Q: Can brushing hurt the smile?
A: If you use the wrong tools, brush for too long, fail to brush long enough or brush too hard, you can harm the teeth and gums. It’s best to gently brush the teeth for two minutes twice a day with the right tools.
