Brushing

At Frankel Dentistry, we like to say “a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body.” Brushing is an important part of every oral hygiene regimen. By brushing properly, you are drastically decreasing your risks of tooth decay and gum disease. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is very serious. Not only can it cause tooth loss, but it can also destroy the barrier between oral bacteria and your bloodstream, increasing your chances of heart disease and stroke.

There are several important tips to remember when brushing your teeth. First, use a toothpaste that carries and ADA seal of approval and brush at least twice a day for three minutes. However, it is preferred that you brush after every meal. Secondly, use a small, soft, angled brush and move it in a small circular motion across the surface of each tooth while applying a small amount of pressure. Next, make sure you are cleaning your gum line. But, while doing so, make sure you are not brushing too harshly, as that can actually damage your gums and make them more sensitive. Don't forget to floss and brush or scrape your tongue to remove the bacteria the lives there as well. It is also important that you buy a new toothbrush every three to four month as one with worn out bristles is far less effective.

Patient Testimonials

I'm very grateful. I came here today, I've had years of dental problems. I came in on an emergency. Just the way they were so gentle and helpful with this procedure is greatly appreciated and I thank you.

Very professional, positive experience having my teeth cleaned. From the friendly greeting by the receptionist, to the assistant who escorted me to my room, to the hygienist who cleaned my teeth--and the final check-in by Dr. Frankel, I felt well treated and in great hands.

Excellent as always. My wife & I have been going to Frankel's since the late '60's, and have no plans to change.
