We encourage ANY questions you have about your smile. And we look forward to seeing you.

We believe in prevention and strong dental care. Taking care of your mouth is just as important as taking care of your body. That is why each patient receives a tooth kit to take home with them after every cleaning. Proper daily Brushing and Flossing is a great start to a healthy mouth.

What's the correct way to Brush? Don't worry. Most people ask this same question. We will educate you on what to do and other techniques that are more fit for your own personal dental routine. For now, if interested, here are a few general guidelines:

  • Brush at least TWO minutes. - After you wake up and Before you sleep.
  • Always brush softly using soft bristle toothbrush. (Unless otherwise recommended.)
  • Brush tooth of: outside, inside, and chewing surfaces.
  • Reach all the way in the back!
  • Floss daily. Very important.
  • Don't forget the tongue! 50% of bacteria in our mouth may lie on our tongue!
  • It's a good idea to brush after eating or drinking from lots of sweets.
  • Replace toothbrush once it starts fanning out.
  • Brush in circles.
  • Yes children can floss. This helps them get into the habit of flossing as they grow up.
  • It's best to monitor your child's brushing and flossing with them until they can truly brush and remove as much plaque effectively on their own. Perhaps allow them to brush in the morning, while you brush with them and check at night.
  • Brush at a 45 degree angle.
  • Slowly adapt bristles onto and in between teeth and underneath gum.
  • Move bristles softly back and forth.
  • Then, brush away from gums.
  • Use vertical angle on front teeth if you have a narrow mouth.
Orthodontics (Braces):
  • Brushing in between meals is good idea.
  • Food can trap easily when especially with braces.
  • Using "interdental toothbrush" is great for removing food in between.
