Brushing your teeth is an important part of your dental care routine. For a healthy mouth and smile….
-Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily.
-Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
-Make sure you are using a good toothpaste.
HERE ARE FEW BRUSHING TECHNIQUES;
-Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums.
-Gently move the brush back and forth in short (tooth-wide) strokes.
-Brush the outer surfaces, the inner surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.
-To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes.
