The way you brush your teeth is important. Think of all the bacteria and other “stuff” that is living on your teeth after you’ve had a meal. Throughout your life, you’ve most likely had the following drilled into your brain if not by a dentist, then by your parents: “Make sure you brush and floss twice a day. Right after you eat breakfast and before you go to bed, I better see those teeth sparkling clean.” We hope we didn’t bring up any bad flashbacks. The truth is, yes, brushing and flossing twice a day is very important and helps keep your dental health in check. But, have you ever paid attention to how you’re brushing your teeth? Subtle changes in your regimen can pay huge dividends down the road. Silver lake dentist, Dr. Michael Michel, wants you to brush the right time, the first time.
