Best Robbinsdale MN Dentist | Brushing on your Gumline

Best Robbinsdale MN Dentist | Brushing on your Gumline

Most people are unaware that brushing along your gumline is actually one of the most important areas of the mouth to focus on. Did you know that healthy gum pockets are 1-3mm deep, which means that even in a completely healthy mouth there is at least 2-3mm of room for things like food/plaque/bacteria to hide. When the plaque and bacteria sit on your teeth and under your gums they can cause infection or gum disease. After the plaque sits on your tooth for 48 hours it begins to harden and bonds onto the tooth; which requires dental instruments to remove.

Best Robbinsdale MN Dentist | Recommended Tooth Brushing Steps for Gumline

This is why it is so important to be brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day. We recommend light pressure with a 45* angle placing half the toothbrush on the gums and half on the tooth, work in circular motions because this allows the toothbrush bristles to get under your gums and loosen the plaque and bacteria. After brushing your teeth, it is very important to floss because your toothbrush can only reach so far into the gum pocket and the floss reaches all the way to the bottom which helps to ensure a proper cleaning. Here at Clear Lakes Dental we provide patient education and demonstrations to ensure that you understand how to have the best oral hygiene.
