The Brushing Do’s and Don’t’s

For most of us, brushing our teeth on a regular basis is just part of our daily routine. When you brush, are you doing it correctly though? Jordan Dentistry, located in Cumming, GA, wants to stress the importance of efficient and effective brushing to all of its patients. So, here are some do’s and don’ts to follow when picking up that toothbrush!toothbrush

DO

  • Try brushing in the morning and before you go to sleep but the best time to brush is after you eat!
  • Brush your tongue. Your tongue can hold lots of bacteria and also can cause bad breath. Don’t forget to brush it!
  • 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.
  • Use mouth rinse.

DON’T

  • Share your toothbrush
  • Brush too hard
  • Leave the water on. Conserve water and help the environment (and your water bill).
  • 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!
