ORAL HYGIENE

Brushing

Brushing should be done twice per day to eliminate plaque and prevent disease. 

  • Apply gentle pressure to your teeth to avoid damaging gum tissue.

  • Be sure to brush chewing surfaces, inner tooth surfaces, outer tooth surfaces, and behind the teeth.

  • Brush each tooth individually.

Flossing

Cleaning between your teeth is just as important as brushing the teeth themselves. Tools such as dental floss and picks are able to remove debris that a brush cannot reach.

 

  •  Guide the floss along the gum line. 

  • Be sure to go between each tooth, including your molars.
