Toothbrush FAQ

Your teeth play a huge role in maintaining your body’s well-being. They aid you in the process of digesting food by enabling you to chew, they provide your face with the support it needs to keep its structure, and they let you express yourself with a smile. You owe it to your teeth to care for them the best you possibly can. That begins with the simple act of brushing them. Are you sure you’re not overlooking anything? There may be room to grow. This toothbrush FAQ can give you some insight.

Question 1: How Often Should I Replace My Toothbrush?

You should replace your toothbrush at least every three months. Through time and usage, your toothbrush’s bristles can become broken and frayed. Once your toothbrush has reached this state, it is practically useless. Be sure to replace your toothbrush with one that has the ADA seal of approval.

Question 2: Am I Brushing My Teeth Hard Enough?

Brushing your teeth too hard can do damage to your gum tissue and wear down your enamel, leaving you vulnerable to cavities and gum disease. Brush firmly but gently to get the best out of your toothbrush.

Question 3: How Long Should I Brush?

You should brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day. It’s urgent that you set aside time each and every day to ensure you are getting the most out of your brushing. Start an alarm on your phone to time yourself. You can even play a song you like to make it fun.
