Brushing is very important. In fact, it’s so important that it’s strongly recommended to brush twice a day. However, no matter how often you brush, you either brush correctly or you don’t. Our dentist, Dr. Federico Lago, is happy to help you have the top-notch brushing routine you need by listing some handy brushing tips here:

-Use a soft-bristled toothbrush: The soft bristles might seem too weak to handle a proper cleaning job, but they are quite the opposite. In fact, they can effectively clean the teeth all while caring for the gums. So, make sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush each time you clean your smile.

-Use a timer: A timer can help you avoid under or over brushing. It’s important to only brush for two minutes each time. So, get a timer while you scrub so you can properly clean and care for your teeth.

-Use an electric toothbrush: An electric toothbrush can help you perform a top-notch brushing routine because it reduces the amount of pressure you use while brushing, it helps you brush for the appropriate amount of time, and it also helps you clean each tooth equally.
