Tooth Brushing Tips

You should brush your teeth at least twice each day. Your dentist can advise you on the best way to brush your teeth in order to ensure the best dental care for you. When you’re brushing your teeth there are certain things to do that will make sure your teeth are “dentist fresh” even in between your trips to the dentist for dental check-ups.

Dentists recommend that you hold the toothbrush at an angle while brushing your teeth. Begin with the toothbrush against your gum line and move it down from the gum line to the bottom of your teeth.

Even if you don’t have an electric toothbrush like the ones used at the dentist for your dental cleaning you can still make sure to thoroughly clean each and every tooth. Be diligent and clean the front, back, and bottom side of all your teeth. Dentists have an easy time with this because of the dental tools at their disposal, but regular careful brushing of your teeth will go a long way at maintaining dental health in between visits to the dentist.

Once all your teeth are clean, brush your tongue gently with the toothbrush. This will help keep your whole mouth nice and fresh, especially in between your visits to the dentist.
