Brushing 101

file0001780228633Ready, set, brush! We all want our families to have healthy mouths and clean teeth but do you know the “Do’s and Don’ts” of brushing? We have put together a list of a few brushing 101 basics to get you started!

  • DO brush your teeth every day! Try brushing in the morning and before you go to sleep but the best time to brush is after you eat!
  • DO brush your tongue. Your tongue can hold lots of bacteria and also can cause bad breath. Don’t forget to brush it!
  • DO throw your old toothbrush away. It’s great to replace your toothbrush around the three-month mark. It’s full of bacteria if it’s sitting too long.
  • DO use mouth rinse
  • DON’T share your toothbrush
  • DON’T brush too hard
  • DON’T leave the water on. Conserve water and help the environment (and your water bill).
  • DON’T think that rinsing doesn’t matter. After you have stirred up all the plague on your teeth make sure to rinse and spit it out. You will feel minty fresh!
