Playing Meet The TikTok-Famous Dentist Helping Improve Smiles

Are you brushing your teeth incorrectly and does your dentist know when you are lying about how often you floss?

Dentist Dr. Gao, who has gained fame on TikTok for his informative and educational videos, joins The Doctors to share tips on how to improve your smile.

Dr. Gao explains the most common issue when it comes to brushing your teeth is when someone only focuses on just the teeth. He says many of us neglect cleaning the gums and he says you should always brush (in small circles) at a 45-degree angle towards the gum line. Also, he says to make sure to use a toothbrush with soft bristles and do not use too much pressure as you brush.

Also, if you have not been flossing regularly, Dr. Gao explains your dentist knows. "Your gums will reflect how you are truly cleaning [your teeth] at home," he says, noting gums that are not cleaned properly will be more swollen, red, or bleed.

And how often should you be flossing? The TikTok-famous dentist says at least once a day is ideal and says it should occur either in the morning, night, or even in the middle of the day. The goal is to make it a sustainable habit.
