Home Care

Our ultimate goal at Tumminia Dental is for all of our patients to have a beautiful and healthy smile that lasts a lifetime. The most critical element in achieving that goal is your personal home care. Proper brushing and flossing are of utmost importance to your oral hygiene.

Tooth Brushing

  • Brush your teeth at least 2 times daily (most importantly before bed)
  • Use a soft bristle brush and replace every 3 months
  • Place the brush at a 45 degree angle to the gums and gently brush in circular motions always maintaining contact with the teeth and gums
  • Brush outer, inner and biting surfaces of all teeth
  • Electric toothbrushes are highly recommended due to their plaque removal effectiveness and efficiency
  • Always brush the tongue


  • Daily flossing cleans between teeth and under the gum line
