Did you know there is more to brushing than just picking up a toothbrush and scrubbing your chompers? Well, it’s true. In fact, there are some secrets that can make brushing even more effective and successful. To help you, Dr. Lara Perry and our dental team are thrilled to share some effective brushing tips with you.

The first tip is to use a soft-bristled toothbrush that has a one-inch head and a non-slip grip. These characteristics will help you properly clean your smile because they help the brush care for your smile as well as reach the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth.

Second, use a toothbrush that is effective. This means you need a new brush if you have used it longer than 4 months or if the bristles are worn down. It’s also important to replace your brush after you have recovered from a sickness.

Third, use fluoride toothpaste as you brush. The fluoride can help your teeth maintain their health and strength. When choosing toothpaste at the store, pick one that has been approved by the American Dental Association. It’s best if your toothbrush has been approved by the ADA as well. The ADA acceptance proves that the oral hygiene tool is safe and effective for your teeth and gums.
