Flossing and brushing are the two most important tools in defeating plaque and stopping cavities. An adequate rule to keep when brushing is the 2×2 rule. This rule is simply brushing twice a day for two minutes. Brush on all the sides of your teeth as well as the tongue and roof of your mouth. Form a C-shape between your teeth when flossing to get the best angle to remove bits. Mouthwash is another great tool to reach crannies of the mouth to prevent buildup. This can reach spots most dental tools cannot since it is a liquid.

Look for the seal of approval from the American Dental Association (ADA) when purchasing dental products like toothpaste, flosses, or mouthwashes. Schedule a consultation or appointment with Dr. Todd Tibbs today to get the best results for a healthy and bright smile!
