When you’re focusing on your dental hygiene, one of the key factors, of course, is ensuring you’re brushing correctly and that you’re doing so on a consistent basis, so your smile remains healthy. With that said, you may feel that your primary goal is just to go through the motions and be done with it. However, what if you were to think of effective brushing as something with which you might achieve victory? What might that require and how wonderful would it feel to sense that you’re being victorious with your care, rather than just getting by? Let’s talk about what this may call for and you’ll quickly learn from our Pella, IA team that it’s easier than you may have thought.
Keep The Time And Frequency On Track
If your goal is to feel like you have achieved victory in your brushing, then make sure you begin by considering the time and frequency of your dental hygiene. First things first, your hygiene must take place twice daily. As for the brushing portion, this is easy. It also has to happen twice a day (morning and evening). You also need to remember to brush for two minutes each time you brush. Keep the number “2” in mind and you won’t have any problems!
Accompany One Daily Session With Flossing
Now, if you want your brushing to be its best, that means remembering that you also need to floss. Why is that, you ask? Well, we remind you that these two tasks are companions to one another. Brushing makes for more effective flossing, while flossing makes for more effective brushing. They both remove plaque and debris from your smile, picking up where the other left off, so your dental hygiene is complete.
Use A Brush That’s Fantastic!
Don’t settle for a brush you don’t like, for a brush you feel isn’t living up to your needs, etc. Instead, find one that will allow you to prove to be a victorious brusher! Make sure that you can comfortably use it, as you make your way throughout your entire smile. Choose one with soft bristles and, preferably, one that has been accepted by the American Dental Association (ADA). Of course, you also need to use each brush for no longer than four months for your best dental hygiene.
