Brushing – The Right Way
When it comes to brushing your teeth, this is one time when less is definitely not more. The time you spend brushing is a factor, and unless you’re brushing for two minutes, you’re doing your teeth a disservice.
Just remember – when it comes to dental maintenance – it helps if you have something to maintain, and that starts with a professional cleaning, flossing and examination at Dentiland. Call us to get started and we’ll show you how to brush your teeth – the right way!
There’s a Right Way to Brush?
Yes of course there is – just like there’s a right way to do almost anything! If you want brushing to be effective, it has to be done properly in order to remove the bacteria and plaque that cause tooth decay and gum disease.
Electric or Manual – Which is Better?
The best toothbrush for you is the one that will make you brush! Many studies have shown that manual toothbrushes and regular electric toothbrushes are fairly comparable when it comes to plaque removal. However, several studies have determined that the rotating oscillating electric toothbrushes appear to be superior to both in removing plague and preventing gum disease.
Some of the electric toothbrushes even come with a built in two-minute timer that beeps at 30-second intervals to let you know it’s time to move to a different area! Hi-tech bells and whistles aren’t always better, but any brush that removes more plaque is certainly worth the investment in your dental health!
