Back to the Basics-How to Brush Your Teeth

Tooth Brushing

Although most people learned to brush their teeth as kids, many adults don’t follow the brushing recommendations of their family dentistry experts. It’s great to find an affordable dentist to fill cavities, but most tooth decay can be prevented with a consistent dental care routine. To improve your oral hygiene and save money on future dental care, revisit the proper brushing techniques.

Why is Proper Tooth Brushing So Important?

After you eat or drink, food debris lingers, causing plaque to form. If you don’t remove plaque properly, it will form tartar, and once tartar is in place, it takes professional dental care to remove it. Leaving plaque on your teeth for an extended period of time will lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Brushing twice a day can help to prevent plaque from forming.

Tooth Brushing Tips

  • Divide your mouth into four quadrants and spend the same amount of time brushing each area.
  • Brushing every tooth is essential, including hard-to-reach areas and sensitive teeth.
  • Spend a least two minutes brushing to ensure that all food debris and bacteria are removed from your teeth.
  • Brush in a gentle, circular motion.
  • Toothbrushes wear out, so replace yours every three to four months.

Use the Best Dental Care Productsto Get the Best Results

Keep up with the latest in dental care, and only use toothpastes that are accepted by the ADA (American Dental Association). Many toothpastes are designed for specific needs such as tartar control, whitening, or improving your breath. Ask your family dentistry experts about the best options for you. Your dental care routine should include brushing at least twice daily, flossing every day, and using mouthwash.
