Dental Do’s and Don’ts

Brushing Basics

Thorough brushing means using the right tools and the correct technique. Many dentists recommend electric toothbrushes, which clean teeth and gums without harsh scrubbing. “The right toothbrush can mean the difference between getting a thorough cleaning or damaging your enamel,” advises Dr. Smigel, who developed the Supersmile Advanced Sonic Pulse Toothbrush, which delivers 30,000 strokes per minute that clean and massage the gums, increasing blood supply. But the bottom line, advises Dr. Smigel, is brushing twice daily for a full two minutes each time without hard scrubbing. “Placing too much pressure on our teeth can wear away at the tooth enamel, which causes pain {and} sensitivity, as well as an increased risk of tooth decay.” So be gentle!
