The Right Way To Brush

Brushing your teeth is something you do every day or at least something you should do every day. Occasionally, you get lazy while you are brushing your teeth and begin to miss important sections. All of your teeth are important, so stop missing sections because you’re rushing to work, school, or to bed. Take some time to learn the right way to brush your teeth from a

Dentist in Missouri City,Texas.

At Designer Smiles Dentistry, we strive to be the best dentist in the area. By providing you with an assortment of tips to enhance your brushing game, we hope you’re able to have the best teeth of your life.

There is a proper brushing technique; I know it might not seem important, but brushing the right way is the best way to keep your teeth looking shiny and perfect.

Brush your teeth at a 45-degree angle to ensure that you’re able to massage your gums and access all of your teeth. Make sure to brush gently and move in a back and forth motion so each tooth is touched by the brush. Move the toothbrush in wide strokes that are about the size of an individual tooth. Every person’s set of teeth are different, so follow the size of your teeth to determine the size of the strokes. Make sure to move the brush gently as well because you don’t want to harm your gums.

When you brush, focus on the outer, inner, and chewing surfaces of your teeth. The best way to get all of your teeth is by focusing on each section of your mouth for a certain amount of time. You are supposed to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, so spend a minute on the top set and then a minute on the bottom.

If you are having trouble figuring out the best route to take while brushing your teeth, clean the inside vertically and then up and down. Lastly, brushing your tongue is just as important as your teeth because your tongue carries bacteria. Brush your tongue to get rid of the bacteria so your breath is minty fresh.
