There’s nothing better than a patient who comes in with sparkling clean teeth! Their braces are so nice and shiny and there are no “white spots” beginning around the edges. Their gums are firm and pink (no swollen, red areas).
It’s amazing that a simple two minutes of careful brushing done a few times each day can keep gums and teeth so healthy. I can’t stand the thought that thousands of bacteria might be crawling all over my teeth and gumline so I love brushing. It makes my mouth so fresh and the areas of plaque where bacteria like to live are all destroyed.
Congratulations to all toothbrush lovers who keep their mouths clean and fresh!!
P.S. Next time I’ll talk about my other favorite topic – flossing.
