What is the best brand of toothbrush?
There really isn't one brand of toothbrush that is better than the rest. However, we do recommend choosing a soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head so it can reach everywhere in your mouth and protect your enamel. Hard-bristled toothbrushes can oftentimes damage your enamel and gums.
My gums bleed when I brush. What is this a sign of?
Bleeding gums are usually a sign of gingivitis or gum disease. These can both be prevented by daily brushing and flossing, as well as biannual trips to the dentist. However, a variety of factors can result in bleeding gums. To be safe, please schedule an appointment with our office so that we can best assist you. Preventive care is the safest way to ensure you don't end up with more severe (and costly) problems in the future!
Do I need to use mouthwash?
We recommend ending your daily oral hygiene routine with a mouth rinse. Mouthwashes reduce periodontal disease and help remove any plaque and bacteria that your toothbrush may have missed. Not to mention, they leave your mouth feeling minty fresh!
