Hello guys, hope you are staying safe at home. Brushing will be more important than ever at home due to the quarantine. That is why I want to teach you today the bet techniques to do so. Many patients come to our clinic in Los Algodones and show the way they do it. Long story short, most of them do it wrong and all of us can learn a thing or two.
To improve our dental hygiene it is necessary to improve our brushing technique. It is the basis of any dental care and you should be at the top of your game. By brushing the right way you can clean your teeth and soft tissue from plaque and tartar. It is important to brush every single day or it can build up, creating cavities, gum diseases and bad breath.
Best brushing techniques
To brush like a pro you need to use slow movements. Brush your teeth slow and gentle to avoid harming your enamel and gums. Use a soft bristle toothbrush to brush effectively. Medium and hard bristles are abrasive to your teeth and soft tissue and can make you bleed. Avoid using circle motions so it is somewhat ineffective.
Your best bet is to use horizontal and vertical motions to scrub gently your teeth. Do not forget to brush the roof of your mouth , cheeks, gums and tongue. Those places will accumulate food debris and bacteria so you cannot neglect them. This will help you to avoid bad breath.
Use Mouthwash and dental floss after finishing your superb brush. This will tie up everything up and give you a nice dental care routine you can do every day. It is important to keep in mind that brushing 3 times a day is mandatory for a good dental hygiene.
