This is the way we BRUSH our teeth!

Remember when brushing, being aggressive does not mean a cleaner mouth. A toothbrush should not be used as sandpaper, being too aggressive with your toothbrush can damage tooth enamel and irritate gums. Be gentle. Using a soft-bristle toothbrush will remove the same amount of debris while causing less trauma to your teeth and gums. Book an appointment with us to learn more about how to properly take care of your mouth.
