Brush Perfectly Every Time - 5 Tips
Looking for the best way to brush your teeth? Do you brush your teeth twice a day and diligently floss? Even if you do, your technique could be off and you could be missing most of the debris in your mouth! We’re going back to basics breaking down how to correctly brush your teeth in five steps because we believe everyone deserves a healthy smile!
Here are 5 tips to brush your teeth perfectly everytime:
Tip #1: Use a soft-bristled brush that fits in your mouth comfortably. Can you reach all areas easily?
Tip #2: Angles are everything. Be sure your toothbrush is positioned at a 45-degree angle. Gently move the brush back and forth in short strokes.
Tip #3: Make sure to brush each surface of every tooth – inside, outside and top. Spend extra time on the gum line.
Tip #4: Use the end of your toothbrush to clean the inside surfaces of your front teeth. Don’t neglect the back sides of your teeth!
Tip #5: Brush your tongue to remove bacteria. This will help better your breath and keeps taste buds healthy. Some opt for tongue scrapers, but you can use your toothbrush, as well!
Finish up with flossing and thoroughly rinse with water. After a few weeks using the proper techniques, you may just become your dentist’s favorite patient!
