Your Ashburn Dentist Explains Proper Brushing

Dentist show to a boy how to brush a teeth

The basic tool to clean your teeth, the Tooth Brush, is very important for the health and well-being of your teeth. If you are looking for a new tooth brush Dr Sidhu at Loudoun Family Dental will help you to figure out the best option for you. Even though it is not trivial to go to the supermarket and pick the latest toothbrush in a shiny attractive packing, we never pay attention to what our teeth need. Dr Sidhu believes that as everyone has different smile and every ones teeth are different, one needs and specific toothbrush to fit the needs. This customized advise is what you can always count on when you come to Loudoun Family Dental for dental appointment.

First thing to look for when you go out to buy a brush is to look for the American Dental Association (ADA) seal of approval. ADA approved tooth brushes are robust and will effectively brush your teeth to stop plaque buildup and prevent gum disease.

Common belief is that you should use a hard brush and clean with a force. Apparently this is not true. Dr Sidhu at Loudoun Family Dental recommends that you should use a soft or even extra soft toothbrush to clean your teeth effectively and protect sensitive gum tissue from recession. Most medium to hard bristled brushes will damage teeth and hurt gums, especially if you tend to brush more vigorously.

We highly recommend that you should use electric toothbrushes. These electric toothbrushes keep teeth cleaner than a disposable toothbrush, and help patients stay away from bad habits like brushing too aggressively that can hurt tooth enamel and gum tissue. With the latest technological advancements in this industry you can get a very good quality electric toothbrush at a bargain price. When you come for your cleaning visit the staff at Loudoun Family Dental will show you various options. You can even purchase these high quality brushes from our office and no need to go to other stores for that. As Dr Sidhu will know your tooth details she will recommend the right fit for you. Also an electric toothbrush has the ability to control the pressure you put on your teeth whether you tend to over-brush.

Come in to Loudoun Family Dental for a consultation today and we will help you decide which toothbrush is right for you and your teeth!
