Brushing is an essential activity we all do (I hope…) every single day.
So what are the chances that many of us have gotten it so wrong all this time?
These tips will keep your breath fresh and your teeth healthy.
Make sure you’ve got the right brush.
Cheap brushes are just as good as the expensive ones, but it’s important to choose a brush which has been approved by a dental association. Make sure you keep it clean and replace it every few months.
Do not brush your teeth straight after meals
This can lead to faster enamel breakdown.
Don’t brush your teeth too hard
Hard bristles can damage the teeth and enamel.
If you want to avoid bad breath, then brush your tongue.
Time yourself while you brush.
Set a timer and spend 30 second on each corner of your mouth for a total 2-3 minute affair.
Hit up every corner of your mouth
Just as you shouldn’t rush, you should make sure to brush every corner of your mouth, the inside and outside areas of your teeth, the gums and al chewing surfaces.
Flossing is as important as brushing
You brush every day, now you need to start flossing every day. It is just as important as brushing, so get into the habit.
And there you have it. Remember, good dental hygiene will leave you with fresh breath, a lovely smile and all your teeth.
