Using the right toothbrush can make a big difference in your at-home oral care routine. If you have questions about toothbrushes, we will be happy to recommend some options for you. Please contact North Forest Family Dental Care at 936-271-3338 to learn more about toothbrushes and to make your appointment with our dentists in The Woodlands, Texas.
Our dentists recommend that you brush at least twice each day, and floss at least once, to maintain good oral hygiene and keep your teeth and gums healthy. You should brush for at least 2 minutes, using only soft-bristled toothbrushes. Using a soft-bristled toothbrush will help to preserve the health of your gums. Replace your toothbrush every 3 months, or when the bristles start to bend, to ensure that your brushing is always effective. Our friendly dental hygienists will review oral health instructions with you during your dental exams, and will provide instructions on the best techniques to use while brushing your teeth.
We often recommend the Sonicare toothbrush as the best way of caring for your dental health in between professional dental cleanings and exams. This electric toothbrush uses sonic vibrations to remove the plaque, tartar, and most stains from your teeth, helping you to achieve a healthier smile.
