Regular brushing will help remove bacteria and plaque which can cause decay, gingivitis and periodontal disease. Brushing your teeth can also minimize discoloration from plaque buildup. We recommend for everyone to brush their teeth twice a day, preferably in the morning and before bed. You should try to brush your teeth for two minutes each time. Brushing your teeth for longer than two minutes or more than two times per day can possibly cause enamel wear and damage to your gums. For children, you will want to start lightly brushing their teeth as soon as the first tooth erupts. For babies and infants without teeth, we recommend using a moist soft cloth and massage the gums to reduce any bacterial growth. For toothpaste, you only have to use a pea-size amount to properly clean your teeth.
Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions about brushing, we will be happy to speak with you either over the phone or in person.
