The best way to take care of your teeth is to brush and floss twice a day. This helps remove plaque that collects on teeth and gums. Plaque makes acids and toxins that can damage your teeth and gums.

Here are some ways to get the most out of your brushing routine:

  • Brush for at least 2 minutes, twice a day, with a fluoride toothpaste. Pay special attention to your back teeth, which may have more plaque on them.
  • Use a toothbrush with soft bristles. Brush with gentle strokes so you don't wear away your gums or teeth.
  • Change your toothbrush every 3 months. Bristles that are worn remove less plaque.
  • Brush your tongue to help freshen your breath. Brush from back to front using a gentle sweeping motion.
  • For a healthier mouth, consider using a electric rechargeable toothbrush. Most electric chargeable toothbrushes remove more plaque than manual toothbrushes.
