How to brush
For a bright healthy smile, it’s important to brush your teeth at least twice a day especially after eating.
To start, use a brush with soft nylon bristles.
Squeeze a dab of fluoride toothpaste onto your brush.
Place brush at a 45° angle against teeth and gently sweep over, away from your gum line with short stokes moving up and down.
Continue with the motion, cleaning teeth in small sections.
Rinse your brush after you completed each section.
Pressing too hard can damage tooth enamel and gums, so use gentle pressure and be sure to let the bristles reach into the spaces between teeth.
OUTER SUFACES OF YOUR UPPER TEETH FIRST
When you brush, clean the outer surfaces of your upper teeth first. Then move to the lower ones.
INNER SUFACES OF YOUR UPPER TEETH NEXT
Next, clean the inner surfaces of your upper teeth. Then brush the lower.
When cleaning the backside of teeth, it helps to hold your brush straight up and down and scrub with the bristles of the tip of the brush.
Brush the chewing surfaces of your teeth, playing extra attention to your gum line, back teeth and areas around fillings and crowns.
Finally, finish with the front teeth.
Proper brushing takes at least 2 minutes.
So take your time.
USE A TONGUE CLEANER OR THE BRISTLES TO CLEAN THE TONGUE
When you have brushed all of your teeth, gently brush your tongue and the inside of cheeks to remove bacteria and freshen breath.
Rinse your mouth with water.
Your smile is fresh and clean.
