Brushing Instructions

Brushing: Step 1

Position the toothbrush at 45* in relation to your gum.

Brushing: Step 2

Start brushing in a circular motion; be gentle.

Brushing: Step 3

Carefully, brush the inner and outer surfaces as well as the chewing area of each tooth.

Brushing: Step 4

With the tip of the toothbrush, clean the inner surface of front teeth.

Flossing Instructions

Flossing: Step 1

Wind 18 inches of the floss around your fingers. Wrap most of it around one finger, with the other finger taking the floss up as it is used.

Flossing: Step 2

Use your forefingers with thumbs to guide an inch of floss between the teeth.

Flossing: Step 3

Hold the floss tightly and saw it gently between your teeth. Curve the floss against one tooth in a 'C-shape', gently sliding it beneath the gums.

Flossing: Step 4

Slide it up and down and repeat the process for each tooth.

At Alexandria Art of Dentistry, we believe in practicing safety and prevention.

This is why we lay emphasis on preventive dental care to combat a host of dental issues that can exacerbate overtime due to negligence or ignorance.

This is not only common among children who must be reminded to brush their teeth twice a day, but also surprisingly among adults who must pay regular visits to a certified dentist.
