In most cases, people notice your smile as the first thing they notice about you. Having a healthy and beautiful smile is noticed by others, especially when you have never seen them before. By brushing daily, you can keep your teeth healthy and breath fresh.

Brushing your teeth should be a part of everyone’s daily life. That is because brushing your teeth will improve your oral health dramatically by clearing away the plaque and bacteria that damage your teeth and gums. The importance of avoiding cavities and gum disease is because cavities or gum disease can lead to tooth loss and cause painful situations to your oral health. That is why brushing is a critical factor in your oral health and should be done daily.

A soft-bristled toothbrush is always best to use, so you do not harm your tooth enamel. When you brush your teeth, remember to reach the outer, inner, and top of each tooth for detailed cleaning. Flossing will reach the areas between your teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach. The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every three to four months. Yes, it’s true! Toothbrushes can wear down with use and time, which will not do a great job at brushing your teeth. Thus, be sure to replace your toothbrush and avoid sharing it with other people.
