Taking Care of your Toothbrush

/
In some ways, taking care of your toothbrush is just as important as taking care of your teeth. This is, of course, because your toothbrush is the most important tool in your oral health routine.

Are you Over-brushing?

Hearing that you should brush your teeth twice a day and maintain a healthy flossing regimen will probably not come as much of a shock. We’ve heard it since our first trip to the dentist. But what about over-brushing? In many cases, brushing too vigorously can cause extensive damage similar to that of under-brushing.

A History in Dentistry

Teeth have always been around. So it makes sense that dentistry is almost as ancient as humanity itself. In fact, the word dentistry originates from an Ancient Greek term, odontology (from the Greek odoús, meaning tooth). There is evidence of drilling teeth as a remedy for toothache and enamel removal dating back over 9000 years ago.
