If you want a proper and effective brushing routine, then you need to develop some handy brushing tricks. This is recommended because it’s possible to botch your brushing routine and harm your teeth and gums. The more good brushing habits you have, the less room you have for bad habits. So, our dentist, Dr. Hooty Alayan, is happy to help you have the best brushing routine possible by encouraging you to do the following things:

-Use a soft-bristled toothbrush: The soft bristles can properly and effectively clean the teeth as well as keep the gums in tip-top shape. Other toothbrushes, like the hard-bristled toothbrush, don’t do these things. So, it’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush unless otherwise recommended by our dentist.

-Use a timer: A timer can help you brush for the right amount of time. It’s best to brush for two minutes twice a day. If you brush less or more, it can harm your teeth and smile.

-Use an electric toothbrush: This is recommended because an electric toothbrush can ensure you’re brushing for the appropriate amount of time, reduce the pressure you use while brushing, and make sure you’re cleaning each quadrant of the mouth equally.
