Did you know there are brushing hacks that can help you have a better brushing routine? Well, it’s true. It’s best to adopt those hacks as soon as possible so you can have a better and more effective brushing routine. Our dentists, Dr. Sonny Afshar and Dr. Fara Afshar, are happy to tell you all about those brushing hacks so you can properly care for your smile. Those brushing hacks are:

-Use a soft-bristled toothbrush: Although soft-bristles sound too weak to properly clean the smile, they are actually the exact tool you need. The soft bristles effectively clean the teeth as well as keep the gums in tip-top shape.

-Use a timer: It’s important to brush your teeth for two minutes each time. If you brush shorter or longer than two minutes, it can harm your smile. So, set a timer while you brush so you don’t under or over brush.

-Use an electric toothbrush: An electric toothbrush is a handy tool that can help you properly brush your smile. This is because it reduces the amount of pressure you use while you brush, it times your brushing routine, and it even helps you brush each tooth equally. However, if you can’t use an electric toothbrush, a manual toothbrush can also properly and effectively clean your smile.
