Tooth Brushing

Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is vital for good oral and dental health. To be effective and non-abrasive to your gums, you should always brush your teeth from the base of the gum to the tip to the tooth. Avoid circular motion, and pay special attention to the backs of your teeth, including those more hard-to-reach molars and premolars. As well, to avoid damaging your tooth enamel and to reduce the risk of discomfort on contact with hot or cold foods, use a soft-bristle toothbrush and toothpaste specifically designed for sensitive teeth.

Although brushing is essential, daily dental flossing is equally important, especially before bedtime. Flossing dislodges food particles that a toothbrush simply cannot reach.

Also, did you know that the health of your teeth and gums affects your overall health? For example, poor oral-dental health can lead to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, as well as the development of Type 2 diabetes – one more reason not to take your oral-dental health for granted!
