All of us brush and floss regularly to maintain good oral health. But in order to get the best results, you need to brush and floss the right way. The dental team at Kids First Dental in Martinsville recommends brushing twice a day and using fluoride toothpaste.
If you’ve eaten sugary foods or high-carbohydrate meals, consider adding extra brushing sessions.
Remember to replace your toothbrush every three months, and the size and shape of the toothbrush should be such that you’re able to reach all areas of your mouth easily.
Don’t use hard-bristled brushes as far as possible as they are harsh on tooth enamel. In addition to using a regular toothbrush, you can also use an interdental toothbrush for cleaning debris between teeth.
In addition to regular brushing and flossing, it’s also a good idea to get an annual cleaning done for added protection against cavities. Contact Kids First Dental in Martinsville for more information on our wide range of dental care options.
