Brushing Helps Keep a Healthy Mouth
A good toothbrush is important to your daily oral health care routine. Dental plaque finds areas to hide in your mouth, for example, around crowded teeth or along the gumline. Dental plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth. It must be removed regularly, or it can cause gum inflammation, cavities, and bad breath.
How to Brush Teeth
Here are 3 steps for proper brushing with a manual toothbrush.
- Look at the angle of the toothbrush. Place your toothbrush bristles towards your gums at a 45-degree angle so that the bristles sweep along the gumline. Look in the mirror to assure that you place the brush properly.
- Get the motion down. Slowly move the toothbrush around your mouth in small incremental back and forth motions. Brushing twice a day for 2 minutes is essential. You can do a sweeping motion on the side of each tooth or small circles but remember to focus where the tooth meets the gums, because this is where harmful bacteria that causes dental disease resides.
- Cover all the surfaces. It is important to brush all surfaces of your teeth. Having a sequential method will help ensure nothing is missed. Start on the inside, continue with the outside and finish by brushing the chewing surfaces.
