How to brush your teeth

How do you brush your teeth in the right way?

Whenever you brush your teeth, you just use at least 2 minutes time. Most of the people do not even get close to brushing this long. If you want to get a better feeling of, how much time you use, you could use a stopwatch to keep track of the time. 2 minutes is often way more time than you think, when you are brushing teeth.


You should always use short, gentle strokes, and keep paying attention to the gum line. You should also focus on areas around fillings, crowns or other restoration areas on your teeth.


What toothbrush should i use?

Most of the professional dentists agree that a soft-bristled brush i the best for removing debris and plague from your teeth and gums. It is preferable to use a small-headed brush, since it can better come around in the small areas and corners in your mouth. An electrical toothbrush can for many people come in great handle. The electrical toothbrush is very good for those who has difficulty brushing their teeth them selves or generally just have problems with the manual brushing. The powered toothbrush is for many people a great choice, and can do a better job of cleaning teeth.


Then what about the toothpaste?

The toothpaste is of course also quite important, since it is helping protect and clean your teeth. You should ask your dentist or dental hygienist, which kind of toothpaste that is right for you, and which kind you should use. The toothpaste has a very good protective ability, and should not be washed away with water after the brushing of your teeth. If you absolutely wants to wash the toothpaste away, you should do it at least 2 minutes from the time you stopped brushing your teeth.
