Did you know there are bad tooth brushing habits that can affect the condition of your teeth and gums? Well, it’s true, and our dentist, Dr. Khashayar Khomejany, strongly recommends avoiding those habits as much as possible. To help you do so, they is happy to list those habits as well as give you the tips you need to do just the opposite.

-Using a toothbrush that doesn’t have soft bristles (Soft bristles are the best because they clean the teeth and care for the gums)

-Using a toothbrush that hasn’t been approved by the American Dental Association (The ADA stamp of approval is important because it proves the tool is safe and effective in an oral hygiene routine)

-Not brushing for the appropriate amount of time (It’s best to brush for two minutes each time you scrub your chompers)

-Brushing too hard or too often (You should brush your teeth with a gentle motion and you should brush twice a day, typically every morning and night)
