You understand that you should brush your teeth to keep your teeth clean. You’ve probably know that most people brush their teeth before they go to bed—but do you understand why this is so important? Or how some people don’t necessarily brush their teeth as well as they could?

One of the most important parts of brushing your teeth is having the right toothbrush. Specifically, you want a toothbrush with a head that isn’t too big for your mouth. In fact, you should be able to navigate your toothbrush easily while brushing. Similarly, you should also have bristles that aren’t too hard. If you do, you could accidentally damage your teeth.

You should also brush for at least two minutes at a time, but not for more than two minutes. If you do, you could damage your teeth. Also, please remember to brush up and down in circular motions, not side to side. Brushing side to side can scrape your gums and cause problems.

You should also remember to brush before you go to bed and after you wake up. While it takes several hours for tartar to form, it’s still a good idea to brush in the morning even though you haven’t eaten for several hours.

If you follow these steps—and remember to use mouthwash and floss—you can rest assured knowing your smile is well cared for.
