Brushing your teeth is an important part of your oral hygiene routine. For a healthy mouth and smile the ADA recommends you:

·  Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily.
·  Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
·  Make sure to use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.

The proper brushing technique is to:

·  Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums.
·  Move the brush back and forth gently in short (tooth-wide) strokes.
·  Brush the outer surfaces, the inner surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.
·  To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes.
·  Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and keep your breath fresh.

Of course, brushing your teeth is only a part of a complete oral care routine. You should also make sure to:

·  Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Tooth decay-causing bacteria still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. This helps remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.
·  Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.
·  Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
