Take Good Care of Your Teeth By Following These Six Brushing Tips

Brushing your teeth everyday is one of the best ways to take care of your smile. For optimal dental health, follow these six tips:

1) Pick the right brush that fits your needs – Not all toothbrushes were created equal. Between varying sizes, bristle strengths, and the recommendations given to you from your favorite dental care provider, there are plenty of options to choose from.

2) Master the technique – Brush your teeth at gum line using a 45-degree angle. Gently move your toothbrush back and forth in short motions, cleaning the outer surfaces of your teeth. Move your brush in gentle up and down motions to clean the inner surfaces of your teeth. Then be sure to brush your tongue!

3) Take your time – Follow the “2 minutes x 2 times per day” rule.

4) Don’t overdo it – Ever hear of having too much of a good thing? Overbrushing can cause dental issues such as wearing down the enamel on your teeth or receding gums.

5) Good hygiene is the way to go – Always rinse your toothbrush before and after brushing; germs tend to linger if you don’t keep your toothbrush clean. (Also, do not keep your toothbrush capped or near a toilet. Trust us on this one.)

6) Let it go – Make sure to replace your toothbrush every three to four months or when you start seeing frayed bristles. Also, if you’ve been sick, think about throwing out the old one and replacing it with a new brush.

By practicing proper dental care daily, we minimize the risk of cavities and developing other dental health related issues. To make an appointment with your Huntersville dentist, Dr. JC Duncan, call us today at (704) 948-1300.

What Does Your Smile Say About You?

smile-what your smile says about youWhat is a Smile?

What is a smile?  I think William Arthur Ward put it best, ” A warm smile is the universal language of kindness”.  The simple act of the corners of your mouth turned up and your front teeth exposed provides you positive influence to all the people you encounter.  A smile can project many attributes about yourself. Studies have shown a smile can communicate trustworthiness, attractiveness, sociability, health and much more. As a dentist, educating our patients on the benefits of having healthy gums and teeth is important. Most people don’t realize the social impacts on how a healthy white smile can impact all aspects of your life.

2. I am in Love Smile.

What are the Social impacts to having a White Healthy Smile?

An independent research firm provided new evidence showing that a beautiful white smile has a direct effect on successful interpersonal interactions, both socially and professionally. “The Impact of Whiter Teeth on Key First Impressions” study, commissioned by a leading toothpaste company, shows that a whiter smile substantially affects how others think of you when you first meet.  Other studies have shown that 1 in 3 men believe that a healthy white smile projects advanced college education and financial stability.  So why work on a white, healthy smile?  The social and health benefits are endless.  Contact the office of J.C. Duncan DDS FAGD.  We are always here to provide you information and the best dental treatments available to give you that white healthy smile you are looking for.
