Your dentist, Dr. Mark Baker, strongly recommends brushing twice a day for two minutes each time. If you have braces, it’s best to brush after each meal and snack. Brushing is very important. In fact, it’s so important that you need to keep up with brushing if you want a top-notch oral health. To explain why brushing is important, our dental team is happy to list the reasons here:

-Brushing removes plaque and bacteria from your smile. This is one of the best things brushing can do because plaque and bacteria create periodontal disease and tooth decay. These two dental issues are very dangerous and they can destroy your oral health if you let them. It’s best to prevent these issues by brushing regularly.

-Brushing strengthens your tooth enamel if you use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a mineral that is found in many natural resources. It is known to seep into your tooth enamel and strengthen it, which gives the teeth the ability to fight cavity development and enamel erosion.

-Brushing removes tooth stains. This is because the toothpaste you use has abrasives in it. The abrasives help the bristles deeply clean the enamel and remove minor stains. This can help you have a more beautiful smile.
