Need to ‘Brush Up’ On Your Technique?

The proper brushing technique can make the difference between clean healthy teeth or swollen, bleeding gums, due to plaque build-up.  Brushing your teeth at least twice a day contributes to your overall health, but it also has more specific rewards such as:

Prevents Bad Breath

Studies reveal that approximately 80% of adults deal with bad breath during their life time. Halitosis (bad breath) can be prevented by seeing your dentist and hygienist for regular routine care and by maintaining excellent home care.

Prevents Gum Disease

Gum disease (periodontitist) is a low grade chronic infection that destroys both soft tissue (gums) around teeth and hard tissue (bone).  Gum disease is one of the major causes of adult tooth loss, but it can be treated by your dental team with a customized treatment plan.  Gum disease can be prevented by following a home care routine of brushing twice a day along with flossing daily.

Often people are in a rush to leave for work, or to get to bed, that the amount of time spent brushing is reduced and the brushing technique is not effective.
