Are You Sure You’re Brushing the Right Way?

Tooth Brushing

Proper brushing is one of the most basic tasks in a good dental care routine, but a surprising number of people are doing it wrong. Brushing is something you do every day, so it’s easy to rush through the process without giving it much thought. If you want to keep your smile healthy for life, find an affordable dentist, get regular dental care, and learn to brush your teeth the right way.

Why is Learning How to Brush So Important?

Brushing your teeth is essential for removing food debris from the surfaces of your teeth. After you eat or drink, food particles linger, and a sticky substance called plaque forms. If you don’t remove it properly, it will soon calcify and form tartar. Once tartar is in place, it takes a professional dental cleaning to remove it. If you leave plaque on your teeth for an extended period, it will eventually lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Brushing twice a day can prevent plaque from taking over your smile.

The Best Brushing Tips

  • When brushing your teeth, reaching every tooth is essential. Hard-to-reach areas and sensitive teeth require careful attention.
  • Divide your mouth into four quadrants, and give each the same amount of time and attention.
  • To ensure that all food particles and bacteria are removed from your teeth, spend a least two minutes brushing.
  • Use gentle pressure, and work in a relaxed, circular motion.
  • Toothbrushes eventually wear out and perform poorly, so replace yours every three to four months.

Get the Best Results with the Best Products

Keep up with the latest advances in dental care, and choose only toothpastes accepted by the American Dental Association. Many toothpastes focus on specific needs like tartar control, whitening effects, and improving bad breath. Talk with your dental hygienist or dentist in Atlanta about the best options for your mouth. To complete your dental care routine, floss daily and add mouth rinses to your anti-cavity arsenal.
