Prevent gum disease by brushing your teeth

To keep your teeth and gums healthy, brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. Brushing your teeth every day is the cornerstone of any good oral hygiene routine.

How often should I brush my teeth?

Brushing your teeth twice a day, everyday, is an important part of keeping your  teeth and gums healthy.

What kind of brush should I use?

Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. You can use a manual or  battery powered toothbrush—just make sure to brush thoroughly twice a day, every day!

What size and shape brush should I use?

The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily.

How often should I replace my toothbrush?

You should replace your toothbrush at least every three or four months. If the bristles are frayed, replace you toothbrush sooner. If the bristles are frayed or worn, the toothbrush just won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth.

Does it matter what toothpaste I use?

Yes. Make sure to use toothpaste with fluoride.
