What are the best home oral care habits to have?

When it comes to home oral care, it’s important to be disciplined and thorough! You should brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once (usually in the evening), but that isn’t all! You also need to be sure you’re using the right kind of brush and brushing techniques for maximum effectiveness!

Use a soft-bristled brush – these are far better at not irritating your gums. When you brush, hold the bristles at a 45 degree angle to your teeth. Roll the brush away from your gumline as you brush, and be sure to get the outside, top, and back of your teeth! You should brush for approximately two minutes in order to get a thorough cleaning. We are big advocates of Sonicare as one of the most effective toothbrushes on the market. Ultimately, our hygienists are experts at proper home care and will demonstrate the best individualized techniques needed to keep your unique mouth healthy.
