The American Dental Association recommends that you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
To review the proper brushing technique, here are the essentials:
It is important that you use toothpaste that is right for you. Today there are a variety of toothpaste available in the market claiming to look over tooth decay, gum disease, tartar, and plaque. You might want to consult your dentist to know which is the most suitable toothpaste for you.
For a reliable manual toothbrush, we recommend you find a toothbrush that has soft bristles and a small brush head. The soft bristles are more gentle on gums while being more effective at penetrating the areas between teeth and gums. While a small brush head makes it easier for you to reach the back teeth for a complete brushing.

Bad breath, also called halitosis, is a common problem that causes many to be self-conscious and embarrassed. We are often asked
Coming to Dr Orfaly is The best decision I could have made. I didn’t have a dentist for years and they saw me when I had an emergency. Now I am getting all of my dental work here, perfect caps, bridges and hygiene. I highly recommend Dr Orfaly and his staff.
After having a negative experience with a filling with a past dentist, I was nervous to go to a new dentist with tooth pain. Dr. Orfaly and team were very understanding and knowledgable when walking me through my options for a cracked tooth. 10/10 would recommend due to their professionalism, attention to detail, and level of care. Thanks team!
Dr Orfaly is the best dentist around! I have alot of anxiety around going to the dentist & Dr Orfaly always makes sure to check in to see how I'm doing & is so nice. If a referral is needed to a specialist, he makes the call for you & gets you an appt quickly (mine was even the same day) I love how they book you with the same dental hygienist for all cleanings.. Adds another level of comfort... Shoutout to mine, Kathy!
