Every morning when we wake up the first thing that we search for is tooth brush. For a good oral health it is recommended to brush daily.Even though we’ve been brushing our teeth for years and years, many of us will be surprised to learn that we’re not doing it the right way it has to be done.. Did you know that proper brushing of teeth takes at least two minutes? Most of us do not even come close to brushing that much long time.
There are four best and easiest ways to help you remember how to care for your mouth, teeth and gums:
1.Brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste for at least two minutes, especially first thing in the morning and before bedtime
2.Floss every day – usually at bedtime.
3.Limit the number of times you eat snacks each day.
4.Visit your dentist every six months for an oral exam and professional cleaning.
Many of us have a question for ourselves… Are we brushing the right way? Here are few ways that can make your brushing complete.
(i)Place the toothbrush at a 45° angle along the gum line. Move the toothbrush in a back and forth motion, and repeat for each tooth.
(ii)Brush the inside surface of each tooth, using the same back and forth technique.
(iii)Brush the chewing surface (top) of each tooth.
(iv)Use tip of brush to brush behind each tooth — front and back, top and bottom and up and down strokes.
(v)Make sure that while brushing to clean your tongue to remove odour-causing bacteria.
What Type of Toothbrush Should we Use? Most Dentists agree that a soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth. Small-headed brushes are also preferable, since they can better reach all areas of the mouth, including hard-to-reach back teeth.
How Important is the Toothpaste we Use? It is important that you use a toothpaste that’s right for you. Today there is a wide variety of toothpaste designed for many conditions, including cavities, gingivitis, tartar, stained teeth and sensitivity. Ask your dentist or dental hygienist which toothpaste is right for you.
How Often Should I Replace My Toothbrush? You should replace your toothbrush when it begins to show wear, or every three months, whichever comes first. It is also very important to change toothbrushes after you’ve had a cold, since the bristles can collect germs that can lead to reinfection.
