Did you know beautiful teeth are healthy teeth? If you think about it, perfect teeth are never yellow. Brushing your teeth can remove the plaque and help keep your teeth looking beautiful. To help you understand more about your teeth, our dentist, Dr. David Edlund with Hampden Dental Care in Lakewood, Colorado, is here to help you.                           

Brushing your teeth should be a part of your every morning and evening routine. Brushing your teeth will improve your oral health dramatically because it clears away the plaque and bacteria that damage your teeth and gums. Avoiding cavities and gum disease is essential because cavities or gum disease can lead to tooth loss or cause painful conditions to your oral health.

Remember to use a soft-bristled toothbrush, so you do not harm your tooth enamel. When you brush your teeth, remember to reach the outer, inner, and top of each tooth. Flossing will reach the areas between your teeth and deep along the gum line. Did you know, according to the American Dental Association, your toothbrush should be replaced every three to four months? Well, it’s true! Toothbrushes can wear down over time which will not do a great job at brushing your teeth. As a result, be sure to replace your toothbrush and avoid sharing it with others.
