Do you want a top-notch oral health and smile? If so, you need to properly and effectively brush your teeth. Unfortunately, this might be a tougher task than you think, especially because there are bad tooth brushing habits that can affect your teeth and gums. The good news is that if you avoid these habits, you should be set. Our dentist, Dr. Chris Kim, is happy to tell you all about those habits, which are:

-Using a hard-bristled toothbrush (It’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush so the teeth can be cleaned and the gums can be cared for)

-Not using the right toothbrush (It’s best to use a toothbrush that has been approved by the American Dental Association. This is because the seal of approval proves that the brush is safe and effective)

-Not brushing for the appropriate amount of time (You should brush for two minutes each time you clean your smile)

-Brushing too hard and too often (You need to brush twice a day with a gentle brushing technique)
