Proper brushing is an essential dental care routine for your teeth and gums. The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth at least twice daily and replacing your toothbrush every three to four months. In addition, you should use fluoride toothpaste and brush for two minutes every time. Brushing your teeth helps remove plaque – a sticky film containing bacteria and food particles, which can lead to tooth decay or gum disease over time.
Properly brushing your teeth is not the only part of your dental hygiene routine. You also need to consider the following to ensure you achieve a healthy smile.
