Were you aware that brushing and flossing your teeth could cause problems if these habits are performed too frequently? What does the average dentist recommend and why are these suggestions important to keep in mind?

– Choose a toothbrush with softer bristles, as this will protect delicate enamel.

– Try to limit flossing to one time per day (in the evening if possible).

– Excessive use of mouthwashes will expose your mouth to harsh chemicals.

”Your dentist can advise you more on when and if you need to use mouthwash based on your unique smile.”
