Why Brushing Your Teeth is Important

Brushing your teeth twice every day is one of the best things you can do for your oral health. At Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental, our Albuquerque dentists can help you develop the brushing techniques that can help you keep your teeth white, clean and healthy.

How to Brush Your Teeth

You’re never too old to learn the right way to brush your teeth! Whether you are teaching your child or you want to improve your own technique, our dentists can help you develop healthy brushing habits.

When brushing your teeth, you should:

  • Use short strokes
  • Brush close to the gum line
  • Move the brush up and down, not side to side
  • Brush inner and outer parts of the teeth
  • Brush for at least 2 minutes

Brushing teeth eliminates plaque and bacteria that can cause numerous dental problems, including bad breath and cavities. Toothbrushes should be replaced every 3 months.
