Do you want to have the best brushing technique possible? If so, our Tammy Perison, DDS Family and Cosmetic Dental Care team is more than happy to help you!

Brushing is a simple and easy technique that should be performed at least twice a day. As you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. For the best results possible, use oral hygiene tools that have been accepted by the American Dental Association.

The proper brushing technique that our Tammy Perison, DDS Family and Cosmetic Dental Care team recommends using involves the following steps:

Step 1: Hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums. Gently move the brush back and forth in tooth-wide strokes.

Step 2: Make sure to brush the inner, outer, and chewing surfaces of the teeth. When cleaning the inside surfaces, tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes.

Step 3: Brush your tongue when you are done brushing your teeth. Doing so will remove bacteria and freshen the breath.
