Baby Dental – Do not forget to change out your toothbrush

Monday, Aug. 15th 2022 5:33 AM

Make sure to change your toothbrush regularly. Throw away your old toothbrush every three months or when the bristles start to flare, whichever comes first. Also note: If your bristles flare much sooner than every three months, you may be brushing too hard. Try easing up.

Baby Dental – Have a standard routine for brushing your teeth.

Friday, Aug. 12th 2022 5:30 AM

Try to brush your teeth in the same order every day. This can help you cover every area of your mouth. If you do this routinely, it will become second nature. For example, you can brush the outer sides of your teeth from left to right across the top, then move to the inside and brush right to left. Repeat the pattern for your lower teeth.

Baby Dental – Use a light hand when brushing your teeth.

Saturday, Aug. 6th 2022 5:26 AM

Brushing your teeth too hard can damage your gums. It can cause your gums to recede (move away from the teeth). Plaque attaches to teeth like jam sticks to a spoon. It can not be totally removed by rinsing, but a light brushing will do the trick. Once plaque has hardened into calculus (tartar), brushing can not remove it. If you think you might brush too hard, hold your toothbrush the same way you hold a pen. This encourages a lighter stroke.

Baby Dental – Brushing Twice a Day  

Sunday, Jul. 31st 2022 11:04 AM

It is advise that you should brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes. Brush your teeth in the morning after breakfast.  That way  bits of food are removed. But if you eat in your car or at work, or skip breakfast, brush first thing in the morning.  The second time you should brush your teeth is just before you go to bed. When you sleep, your mouth gets drier. This makes it easier for acids from bacteria to attack your teeth.
