Your Greeley, CO dentist recommends spending at least two minutes brushing your teeth per session. It would help if you were using a soft-bristled toothbrush and cleaning all surfaces of your teeth, including the back portion.
When you brush your teeth, we recommend using a circular motion that includes the gums.
Additionally, you should brush your teeth at least twice daily, but if you can brush and floss after each meal, this would be ideal. And it would help if you never went to bed for the night with debris on your teeth. This causes acid to build up, which erodes your tooth enamel. When you erode enamel, the result is tooth decay.
Dental Exams & Teeth Cleanings to Prevent Disease
Along with your at-home routine, you should be visiting your dentist every six months. These preventive exams lower your cavity, gum disease, and oral infection risks, which saves you time and money in the long run.
At these six-month exams, we also provide professional teeth cleanings to rid your teeth of what your toothbrush can not—tenacious plaque and bacteria that require special dental tools.
