Proper Brushing Do`s and Don`Ts

Mouth open or mouth closed?

After lunch or after dinner?

Flat or at an angle?

We brush our teeth every day (hopefully!), but who knew it was this complicated. Just grab a brush a get to work, right?
Not so fast, my friend! There are actually some best practices to be mindful of when brushing those pearly whites.
The trick is cutting through the fat and finding out exactly what works. We live in a world of alternate facts, truthiness, and lists of “7 Ways to Keep Your Teeth Clean Without Picking Up a Toothbrush.” What’s even correct these days?!
Fear not, because we’ve got you covered with this handy FAQ (frequently asked questions) guide. We’ll keep it simple with some easy dos and don’ts of brushing. Let’s get to it!
Proper Brushing Habits
Don’t: Keep your brush flat
Do: Use a 45-degree angle when brushing
Don’t: Use looooooooong strokes. No need to cover your whole mouth in one stroke!
Do: Use short, side to side strokes
Don’t: Brush with the force of a giant. This isn’t a strongman contest!
Do: Gently cover all areas. A gentle touch helps prevent wear and tear on your enamel
Don’t: Go one and done
Do: Brush at least twice a day, especially after eating or drinking something acidic (like citrus or soda)
Don’t: Be sentimental and use the same toothbrush for life
Do: Change your toothbrush every 3-4 months. A trick to remember: switch out on the first day of each season
Don’t: Be average – the average person brushes their teeth for 45 seconds
Do: Brush for a full 2 minutes. A helpful trick: say the alphabet while brushing a certain section, move to the next section after you hit Z.
Don’t: Keep your toothbrush in a closed container
Do: All your toothbrush to air dry
Don’t: Store your toothbrush on the sink counter where bathroom particles can get on it
Do: Store your toothbrush in the medicine cabinet
Don’t: Wield a tough-bristled brush
Do: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush, which is much better for your tooth enamel
And there we have it! Some easy practices to keep that perfect smile.
Remember: Brushing is only 4 minutes out of the day, so why not make it the best 4 minutes of the day!

New Office Status Update :)

This is so incredibly exciting! ❤️
Let`s take a look at how our new building construction is progressing 😁
It was a total mess! Construction crew did a great job at stripping everything clean. 
At this point we are waiting for permits from the county in order to start the partial demolition and add almost 4000 square feet to the original building. 
We will need all that space in order to accommodate our office`s growth.

We are moving !!!

Hello everyone 🙂

Since it is the bright new beginning of what I suspect will be a tremendous New Year, I decided to start a blog for whoever wants to know what is new and what is happening in our office.

I will try to write a monthly blog and have an interesting subject to talk about each time. It can be about procedures and treatments, promotions or talk about our wonderful staff so you can get a glimpse of who we are as professionals and also, as people.

Today`s subject will be about our exciting move to a new location.
We are extremely happy to announce that we will be moving into a new office located at

             510 Oakfield Dr. Brandon, FL 33511

The building will be completely renovated and extended to a whopping 6000 square feet. It will have the newest technology, new dental chairs and equipment. A state of the art facility. 🙂

Estimated grand opening is January 2020. We cannot wait to welcome all our patients in a modern and beautiful location! Our patients deserve to be treated by the highest standards and with the utmost care.

You will be able to check in and follow the construction progress, equipment installation and all the details in constant updates on all our social media outlets.
