Why Is It Important to Brush Regularly?

Posted .

Brushing your teeth can benefit you and your smile in more ways than you might realize. It’s true! To prove it, Dr. Vincent J. Giaimo and our dental team are happy to explain the many benefits of brushing your teeth twice a day.

First, brushing can remove plaque (the white sticky film) from your teeth. This is important because plaque is a harmful substance that can create tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. If you use a soft-bristled toothbrush regularly, the film can be removed and your smile can remain in top-notch condition.

Second, brushing can provide you with fresh breath. This is because food particles can get stuck between your teeth and produce odors, which results in bad breath. If you brush after each meal, those food particles can be cleansed from your teeth and you can have better breath. You can also improve results by brushing your tongue afterward.

Third, brushing can brighten your teeth. Yo may even want to use a whitening toothpaste. Cleaning the surfaces of the teeth regularly can remove simple stains before they set into your teeth and cause severe discoloration.
