Year-End Smile Upgrades: Toothbrushing Techniques

Posted .

If you wish to enhance your smile through everyday habits, there are always tips and tricks you can use to enhance your tooth brushing techniques. If you wish to upgrade the way you brush your teeth, make sure you’re using the proper tools and using them effectively.

Proper tooth brushing techniques are essential for keeping your teeth clean on a daily basis. Ideally, you should brush your teeth at least 2 minutes twice every day. When brushing your teeth, remain at a 45-degree angle to ensure it can adequately remove plaque buildup and debris. However, to avoid issues that can arise, always use a brush with soft bristles

Gently move your brush with small strokes. In addition, make sure you are cleaning on all sides of a tooth and not missing any areas. When you need to brush your front teeth, you can turn the brush vertical to make it easier for you. Don’t forget to brush your tongue as well to help remove bacteria and to keep your breath fresh. Remember that you cannot adequately clean between teeth with a toothbrush, so be sure to use a dental floss as well each day to clean in areas your toothbrush cannot reach.
