Why Should I Brush Twice a Day?

Dental Health

A good toothbrush is your mouth’s greatest ally in the fight against plaque. 

Plaque is a sticky deposit on teeth accumulated from eating and drinking throughout the day. It’s also a bacterial breeding ground. Brushing twice a day helps you proactively fight the war against bacteria and tooth decay, ensuring your next trip to the dentist is all smiles.

It’s especially critical to brush before bedtime. At night, the mouth gets dry, lacking saliva needed to maintain pH balance. If plaque is not removed before your head hits the pillow, it is invited to the perfect environment for breaking down your teeth.
