Brush Up on Brushing Your Teeth

dca-blog_basic-dental-care-blue-man

Brushing your teeth is one of the first things you learn about dental care, but after many years of the same routine, you may need a refresher on tooth brushing techniques. Brushing is essential for removing the plaque and particles that linger on teeth and lead to dental are problems. That’s why dentists say you need to know the best way to brush in order to keep your teeth in the best of health.

When it comes to the proper ways to brush, most dentists agree on the following brushing basics:

  • Gently brush all of your teeth and gums, including sensitive teeth and hard-to-reach areas.
  • Brush for at least two minutes to properly clean your teeth and get rid of bacteria, food particles and plaque.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three months to ensure its effectiveness and cleanliness.

Just as important as knowing the proper brushing techniques is choosing and using the right brushing tools. First, do a little research and ask an affordable dentist for recommendations on the best dental care products. Look for products that provide several benefits to get the most out of brushing with the least effort and expense. Once you’ve picked the proper brush, look into products that can boost and benefit your dental care routine such as special mouth rinses and flosses.

Brushing may seem like a basic activity, but knowing the basics of brushing can help keep your teeth in top condition and give you another reason to smile.
