Did you know brushing your teeth twice a day is vital for your oral health and smile? Well, it’s true. But why? Well, brushing is extremely important because it can:

Remove plaque: If you want a strong and healthy smile, then you need to remove plaque from your teeth on a regular basis. Plaque is a dangerous substance that can create tooth decay and gum disease. So, brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush can help you wash the plaque away from your smile.

Promote good breath: Sometimes odorous food particles get stuck on and between your teeth, causing bad breath. This can be fixed by brushing your teeth and removing those particles. You can also promote pristine breath by brushing your tongue after you’ve brushed your teeth.

Remove stains: Your teeth can suffer surface stains on a regular basis. If you brush with whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association, you can remove those surface stains frequently and have a whiter and brighter smile.

As you can see, it’s important to brush your teeth at least twice a day. Also, remember to also floss your smile and rinse your mouth daily. Doing these things can help you reach your smile goals.
