Fortunately, there are brushing hacks that can help you have a proper and effective brushing routine. The better brushing routine you have, the healthier and stronger smile you can have. And we want you to have the top-notch smile you deserve! To help you properly and effectively brush your teeth each day, our dentist, Dr. Elhameh Allamehzadeh, encourages you to do the following things:

-Use a soft-bristled toothbrush: The soft bristles might seem too weak to handle a proper cleaning job, but they are quite the opposite. In fact, they can effectively clean the teeth all while caring for the gums. So, make sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush each time you clean your smile.

-Use a timer: A timer can help you brush for the right amount of time. It’s best to brush for two minutes twice a day. If you brush less or more, it can harm your teeth and smile.

-Use an electric toothbrush: An electric toothbrush is a handy tool that can help you properly brush your smile. This is because it reduces the amount of pressure you use while you brush, it times your brushing routine, and it even helps you brush each tooth equally. However, if you can’t use an electric toothbrush, a manual toothbrush can also properly and effectively clean your smile.
