As you may already know, it’s important to brush your teeth every morning and every night as part of a successful oral hygiene routine. However, you might not know what brushing can actually do for your smile. So, our Morrison Dental Group dental team would like to tell you how beneficial brushing can be for your overall oral health. Brushing can:

Remove plaque: Plaque is a harmful substance that clings to your teeth and promotes tooth decay and gum disease. If it’s not removed on a daily basis, it could severely harm your smile and attack your oral health. When you brush, the soft bristles can clean the plaque from your teeth.

Promote good breath: If you have a dirty smile, there is a higher chance you’ll suffer bad breath. So, each time you brush your smile, you can achieve the clean and pristine breath you deserve. Also, after you brush, you can scrub your tongue to provide an even fresher breath.

Remove stains: Your teeth can suffer surface stains on a regular basis. If you brush with whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association, you can remove those surface stains frequently and have a whiter and brighter smile.

As you can see, brushing can help you in a myriad of ways. This is why you should continue brushing twice a day along with your flossing and rinsing techniques.
