The Right Way to Brush Your Teeth
Feel like you need to “brush up” on your tooth brushing skills? If so, you’ll love these brushing tips!
The first tip would be to hold your brush at a forty-five degree angle against your gumline. It may sound silly, but by dong this combined with a circular sweeping motion away from your gums, you will clean away all that nasty tartar from your gums. This technique will also help in preventing Gingivitis, otherwise known as gum disease.
The next tip is to be sure to brush outside, inside, and chewing surface of each tooth. Be sure to take at least two minutes while doing so, to ensure a thorough cleaning.
The third tip is to brush your tongue. Now you may ask why you would want to do that? The answer is, that by brushing your tongue you eliminate bacteria, and also freshen your breath.
Now that you have these tips, you may want to consider the proper tools for the job. Yes, manual brushes can help you achieve a healthy smile, but a powered toothbrush will do a better job cleaning away built up crud on your teeth. A powered toothbrush is also a great alternative for those who may have difficulty brushing. Be sure to replace your toothbrush as soon as it begins to show wear, or every three months.
Toothpaste is also a very important thing to consider when properly brushing your teeth. There is wide variety of toothpastes designed for many conditions such as stained teeth of sensitivity. Consult your dentist or dental hygienist to find out which toothpaste is right for you!
Now that you are armed with the tools and tips for the right way to brush your teeth, you can be sure that your pearly whites will keep on sparkling.
