Having a good brushing technique is more than just brushing your chompers back and forth until you get tired of scrubbing. In fact, there are habits you can pick up that can help you have the most effective brushing routine possible. Our dentist, Dr. Duke Kim, is more than happy to tell you all about those habits today!

-Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes (Brushing more or less can affect the health of your teeth and gums, which can alter the overall condition of your oral health)

-Brush your teeth gently (Brushing too hard can make the gums pull away from the teeth and expose the roots)

-Use a toothbrush that has soft bristles (This type of bristle can clean the teeth and care for the oral tissues)

-Use a toothbrush that has been approved by the American Dental Association (The stamp of approval proves that the tool is safe and effective in an oral hygiene routine)
