Most Sacramento residents brush their teeth (at least we hope so). However, there are many who brush improperly but don’t realize that their dental hygiene practices may be contributing to oral problems. They may pride themselves on their diligence, but frequency does not make up for incorrect methods. One of the most common errors – especially for young Sacramento dental patients – is fast, aggressive teeth cleaning with a hard bristle toothbrush.
There is a certain logic to this method; when you want to clean smooth surfaces like bathroom tiles, you scrub with a hard brush, right? The problem is that teeth and gums have special characteristics that require finesse. While enamel is durable, the soft tissues in the mouth are not designed for intense scouring.
If you use hard bristles against possible cavity makers, froth at the mouth, speed through those 30 inches of the tooth surface and spit everything out in less than a minute, this post is for you.
The friendly dental hygienists at Arden Dental Care – Michael S. Boyce DDS in Sacramento teach patients the proper way to brush teeth. With a slow, deliberate two minutes twice daily, you can take control of your dental hygiene, improve your oral health, and lessen the risk of future problems.
If you have already damaged your teeth or gums through aggressive or haphazard brushing, it’s essential to fix those problems and get back on track.
