If you’re curious to know why brushing is important, then our dentist, Dr. Dorsey W. Baker, is happy to give you the answers you’re looking for. Brushing is very important for a successful oral health. In fact, for the top-notch smile you deserve, you need to brush twice a day for two minutes each time. Here are the reasons why brushing is so important:

-Brushing removes plaque and bacteria from your smile. This is very important because plaque and bacteria promote the development of gum disease and tooth decay. These are very dangerous dental issues that should be prevented as much as possible. Brushing helps you prevent these issues.

-Brushing strengthens your tooth enamel. This is because the fluoride toothpaste you use to brush nourishes your teeth. The fluoride seeps into the enamel and strengthens it, giving it the ability to fight cavities and enamel erosion.

-Brushing removes tooth stains. This is because the toothpaste has abrasives and sometimes whitening agents that can deeply clean the tooth enamel and remove any minor stains. It oftentimes doesn’t remove stubborn stains, but it can still help you have a more attractive smile.
