You probably know that there are a few things you’ll need to do if you’re hoping to keep your teeth clean. For example, you probably know that you should visit our dentist for regular cleanings. This is important because our team will be able to remove tartar that you won’t be able to clean from home. However, you probably know that it’s also very important that you clean your teeth well at home.

Generally, we recommend brushing for two minutes at a time twice a day. Still, did you know that the toothbrush you choose could have an impact on your teeth? Generally, we recommend choosing a brush with soft bristles. If you do use a brush with hard bristles, you could damage your teeth or your gums. Similarly, if you brush too hard, you could damage your teeth.

Naturally, you should also care for your toothbrush well by storing it in an open area where it can dry. You should also remember to rinse your brush out after each use. Finally, please remember to replace your toothbrush fairly often. In fact, we recommend replacing your brush at least once every three or four months. You should also replace your brush if you’ve had a cold.
