Tooth Brushing is Important for Dental Health
Dr. Alexander is a Jacksonville family dentist. He recommends that his patients brush their teeth twice per day. It also happens to be the recommendation of the American Dental Association. Brushing twice per day and flossing once a day will keep dental health problems at bay between preventive care visits.
Using the right type of brush is also important! Be sure to use a soft-bristled brush to avoid irritating your sensitive gum tissue. Many patients prefer an electric toothbrush, but be sure that the head has soft bristles as well.
Brush your teeth and along the gum line for approximately two minutes, twice per day. After one brushing, floss between the teeth to remove any food particles and plaque that can cause tooth decay. Regular brushing can easily remove plaque from tooth surfaces and helps to prevent the development of gum disease.
Rinsing daily with a fluoride rinse is also an important part of maintaining healthy tooth enamel. A good fluoride mouthwash will keep your teeth resistant to decay.
Visit Dr. Alexander in his Jacksonville dentist office twice per year for a thorough professional dental cleaning. The visit will also give him the opportunity to spot and treat any developing dental health problems.
Avoiding the Dentist Affects both Oral Health AND Overall Health
