How to Brush Your Teeth – The Right Way

How Often Should You Brush Your Teeth?

You should brush your teeth a minimum of twice per day, with bedtime being the most important. When you sleep, you don’t produce as much saliva as you do during the day to wash away the bad bacteria that causes decay. You can help to prevent damage by giving your teeth a good cleaning before you turn in for the night. When it comes to children, a little education goes a long way so that family dental visits are limited to check-ups and cleanings, not fillings!(Dental Handpiece)
Before You Brush

Before you start brushing your teeth, whip out a piece of floss (approximately the length of your arm), and clear out any debris that might be stuck between your teeth. Did you know that if all you do is brush your teeth, you’ve missed out on about 1/3 of the surface area of your teeth? Flossing fixes that problem nicely! And the tooth brushing that you’re going to do afterwards will complete the cleaning process. You say you floss after you brush? That’s OK, too, as the most important thing to do is to ensure you do floss!

To floss, grab on to it tightly, and gently work it in between your teeth – hold it firmly against your tooth and move it carefully up and down, taking care to reach below the gum line as far as is comfortable. Repeat with every tooth.
How to Brush Your Teeth the Right Way

Start with a fresh toothbrush. Did you know you ought to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months? So don’t depend solely on the free toothbrush you get at your bi-annual dental check-ups. That’s simply not often enough to replace it. As you use your toothbrush, the bristles get worn down and fail to clean as well as they used to. Additionally, sometimes the bristles get bent or broken and irritate your gums as you brush. A brand spanking new toothbrush, with soft bristles, is the solution.

Follow the 2 x 2 rule. Brush your teeth for 2 minutes, twice a day. Of course, in a perfect world, you’d also brush after every time you eat. But if you don’t have time for that, stick to a brush every morning when you wake up, and every evening before you go to sleep for the night.

Rub your teeth with a gentle motion, holding the toothbrush at an angle to the gums. Take your time, and ensure that you reach every exposed surface of each tooth. Rub back and forth across the tooth – paying attention so that you get the inside, outside, and chewing surfaces of each tooth. Ensure you also brush along the gum line where food debris has a habit of collecting.

Finally, brush your tongue. Your tongue is home to lots of bacteria that not only contribute to tooth decay, but bad breath too! Keep it clean and fresh with a gentle brush twice a day.
Brushing Properly Can Save You Money

If you take care with brushing your teeth thoroughly every day, it not only dramatically lowers your odds of tooth decay, but will make your dental visits faster, easier, and less expensive. The better you clean your teeth, the less plaque that will form. Less plaque means your regular tooth-cleaning appointments with your dentist will be faster and easier since they won’t have so much plaque to remove in the first place. Many dentists bill for tooth cleaning based on how much time it takes. Less work for them means less time, and a smaller bill for you!
