Q: Why do I need to brush?

A: You need to brush because brushing cleans your teeth and gums regularly. This is necessary because there are many harmful substances on your smile that can promote dental issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. Brushing can help you keep these problems at bay.

Q: How often should I brush?

A: You should brush twice a day, like every morning and night.

Q: What should I use to brush?

A: It’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. The soft bristles will clean your teeth and care for your gums, and the fluoride toothpaste will strengthen your tooth enamel to help you have a stronger smile.
