Regular and thorough brushing of the teeth helps to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. It helps to remove bacteria, source of cavities, and plaque that causes gum disease.

To be the safest, brushing should be done after each meal, because the bacteria begin to attack the teeth within minutes of eating. However, brush your teeth at least once a day and always before going to bed. It’s not complicated, but there is an excellent way to brush your teeth and a bad one.

How To Brush Your Teeth

Step 1

The position of the brush should be 45-degree to the teeth, placing the bristles of the toothbrush at the junction of the teeth and gums. Then, in a circular motion, massage slightly from top to bottom. Do not rub. The recession of the gums is often because we brushed our teeth too hard for years.

Use a piece of dental floss the equivalent of the distance between your hand and your shoulder.

Step 2

Clean each side of each tooth. The masticatory side, the bottom of the cheek and that of the tongue.

 Step 3

Go slowly without hurrying. Proper brushing should take 2 to 3 minutes. Try to time yourself.

Step 4

Change your usual way of brushing your teeth. Most people still brush their teeth in the same way. This means that they are still missing the same places. Try to change your routine.

Step 5

Use a toothbrush with soft, rounded bristles. A good brush cleans better. Choose a size and shape of the brush that allows you to reach the back teeth. There are many kinds of toothbrushes, so ask your dentist to suggest the one that’s right for you. Our team recommends changing toothbrushes every three months.
