Brushing and Flossing

Dr. Sanjay Dhir

We are honored to be your "oral home" and a trusted member of your extended family at Dhir Dentistry in San Diego, California. Excellent home care is founded on a foundation of routine brushing and flossing in a correct way.

It is generally recommended to brush at least twice a day. Floss every day to "grab" what the brush has left behind.

Do you know that plaque hardens every 24 to 48 hours?

Make careful to go over the outside, inside, and chewing surfaces. Give the same attention to your floss.

Take your time. Brush for at least two minutes each time.

This allows you to reach those rear, grooved teeth that tend to collect food and bacteria. It is also critical to use the proper floss.

Choose a soft-bristled brush that is the perfect size and shape for your mouth.
