At Home Care

This may sound like the same lecture you heard from your mother, but taking the time to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss regularly are necessary for keeping your teeth free of plaque and decay.

At-Home Dental Care

Taking adequate care of your teeth requires more than a cursory pass of the tooth brush once or twice a day. Most people do not brush for the required time to remove debris. Our Cooley Smiles dentists recommend that you brush your teeth in a side-to-side and a circular motion for at least 2 minutes, twice a day. Proper tooth brushing should be done with a soft bristle brush in order to protect your enamel.

Brushing alone will not remove the food particles that hide between the teeth. Flossing after you brush will help remove these particles and reduce instances of decay and bad breath. You may follow flossing with an anti-cavity or antiseptic mouthwash, allowing you to enjoy fresher breath and healthier teeth throughout the day.
