Do you ever wonder why brushing your teeth is important? If so, you have come to the right blog. As you might already know, our dentist, Dr. Robert Jackson, recommends brushing twice a day for two minutes each time. As you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. To help you understand the importance of brushing, our dental team is happy to list a couple reasons.

Brushing removes plaque and cleans your smile. This is very important if you want strong and healthy teeth and gums that are free from dental problems. Plaque is a harmful substance that clings to the teeth, attacks the enamel, and promotes dental issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. Other food particles and bacteria in your mouth can contribute to the development of these issues as well as promote others, like enamel erosion and bad breath. Brushing can help you have a healthy smile.

Brushing strengthens your teeth. This is the case if you use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a beneficial mineral that seeps into your tooth enamel and strengthens it, giving it the ability to fight bacteria and prevent dental issues. It’s best to expose your teeth to fluoride by brushing with fluoride regularly.
