If you want top-notch smile and oral health, then you need to brush your teeth twice a day—preferably every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to bed. This will help you in a myriad of ways. In fact, brushing can:

Remove plaque: Maintaining a strong and healthy smile involves removing the plaque from your teeth on a regular basis. Plaque is a dangerous substance that is white and almost invisible when it’s against your teeth. Unfortunately, it promotes tooth decay and gum disease. So, it’s best to remove the plaque each day. Luckily, your soft-bristled toothbrush can do that for you when you brush your smile every morning and every night.

Promote good breath: If you have a dirty smile, there is a higher chance you’ll suffer bad breath. So, each time you brush your smile, you can achieve the clean and pristine breath you deserve. Also, after you brush, you can scrub your tongue to provide an even fresher breath.

Remove stains: Unfortunately, your teeth can harbor small staining particles from the foods and drinks you consume each day. If you don’t remove these particles on a regular basis, there is a chance they can set into your teeth and cause more severe stains. By brushing with a whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association, you can remove those surface stains and encourage a whiter and brighter smile.

As you can see, brushing can be extremely beneficial for you and your smile. When you brush, make sure you use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. The soft bristles will thoroughly clean your teeth and take good care of your gums. You can also use a type of paste that helps with certain dental issues you might have.
