Toothbrush with applied toothpaste

Think you’re a tooth-brushing pro? While brushing twice a day is a great first step in taking care of your teeth, the way you’re doing it may not be getting them as clean as you think.

Be on the lookout for these common mouth mishaps that can happen while brushing your teeth:

  • Not brushing for long enough. Dentists recommend brushing for 2 to 3 minutes, twice a day. Most of us only clock around 45 seconds to a minute.
  • Brushing too hard. It doesn’t take a heavy hand to remove plaque, and brushing too hard can lead to bleeding gums, gum abrasions, and a wearing away of the protective enamel. Go for a thorough, light touch, instead.
  • Exposing your toothbrush to germs. Most of us keep our toothbrushes in the bathroom on the sink, but this makes it the perfect spot for germs and bacteria to camp out. Covering it while it’s wet also encourages bacteria to grow, and those germs can get transported to your mouth. Let your toothbrush air dry away from the spray-back of your sink or toilet.
  • Using an old toothbrush. How long has your toothbrush been sitting around? If it’s the same one you’ve been using for the past 3-4 months, or one you’ve used while sick, it’s time to replace it.
  • Missing the gum line. The place where your teeth meet your gums is where plaque and tartar like to build up. It’s also a spot commonly missed while brushing your teeth. Make sure you’re brushing gently, but thoroughly, right at your gum line, both in front of and behind your teeth.

If you are looking for a great dental experience, I would have to suggest Mansouri Family Dental Care. I have been coming here for quite sometime, and I have been incredibly pleased with the kindness and care received from this professional group. Before coming to Mansouri Family Dental, I did not have very positive dental experiences. I like this group because I always feel at ease. I go in knowing that the experience is going to be great.

A wise man once said, "There are 3 very important friends in ones life....Dentist, Lawyer, and Mechanic." Mansouri Family Dental care is no exception, they are Crème de la Crème! My mouth had an early start on WW3, but the war was thwarted before any real life havoc could grip its deadly disease on my health! For a very long time I was battling with a Root Canal ed tooth and it was constantly getting infected....at times the infection would creep its way into my lymph nodes where severe infection would occur and my body would become lethargic and continue its endless fight against proliferating bacteria inside my gum line. I was in dire need of help and feeling miserable and helpless. When things could not get any worse....the permanent Crown broke off taking with it the top of the entire tooth only leaving behind the deep embedded roots inside my jaw. There is nothing I have endured more than these roots driving me insane. I was broke, a student, and unsure of how I could resolve the issue. I contacted my wonderful friend Dodd Mansouri whom is the hygienist at the Mansouri offices and he assured me that all was well and that I was in good hands. God bless his heart!!! First, they quickly sprung into Hero action and personally contacted my Private Dental Insurance company to check and make sure that my procedures would be covered, when it came back that I did not have full coverage.....Mansouri office worked alongside me and helped me upgrade my insurance to full coverage...so my shallow pockets wouldn't burn to the ground. That was far too kind of them to chose to help rather than having me fix the issue myself like a chicken with his head cutoff! So the day finally came and I was due to make a grand appearance at the Cumberland High-rise location, and let me tell you....their offices is nothing short of Grand!! I mean I would literally just pay to go up there and look out through their windows with its mesmerizing views of all Atlanta, just WOW! Now to the matter at hand, after Dr.Mansouris' inspection of my warring mouth....he told me that the rotten tooth had also brought about damage to the tooth behind it and to the tooth in front of it. He said that the tooth behind it seemed far too damaged and that the best route of course was to also root canal that tooth as well. However I told him that I wanted to live to be a 100 and that I needed all my teeth and already having lost one was bad enough. I made the suggestion that if it would be possible if he could try and save that tooth instead of Root Canal. Now, even though his suggestion was the right one he did not try to convince me to have it root canal ed but instead he respected my wishes to want to save the tooth and he said that he would try his best and that if in the near future I would have any issues and pain with the tooth...that then we would take his course of action. Surely enough, he was able to save both tooth. (This review is incomplete, for remainder please check Yelp!)
