A good technique when brushing your teeth is really important to nail your dental hygiene routine. This not only improves your teeth health, but also makes them look great and improve your breath.

Now let’s jump right into today’s topic.
Common brushing mistakes
Many patient come to our clinic thinking they know how to brush their teeth correctly. The truth is that most of them are not applying good brushing technique. This is what it makes their teeth be stained, yellow and discolored. Also some teeth can rot and get caries and other dental diseases. And do not let me start with the gingivitis. As you can see, your brushing technique plays a huge role in your dental health.
The most common mistake is that most patients do not brush their teeth. Some of them just brush them once a day and it is really cringe. You should brush your teeth 3 times a day, especially after meals. It is an easy habit to follow, so if you are not doing it start today. Brush your teeth daily guys, it will avoid so many dental problems in the long run. Also clean your toothbrush daily to avoid putting germs in your mouth.
The correct way to do it is to boil it a couple of minutes in water. That will clean them from bacteria and germs. Also you can use alcohol but you have to make sure you rinse them good. Also do not forget to buy a new toothbrush every 3 months or so, or just wait until your current one have the bristles open.
Another mistake is to ignore brushing the tongue, gums, cheeks and ceiling. They are just as important as your teeth. Food debris, plaque also accumulates there, so it Is important that you clean them too. Down in the next point I will teach you the correct technique to brush them daily and leave them spotlessly clean.
Best brushing techniques
Be gentle, many patients believe that you have to be really aggressive when brushing. They think it will clean their teeth faster and better than anyone. Let me tell you right away that is one of the worst mistakes you can make. Brushing hard not only wears down your tooth enamel, it wears down your gums too! Opt for a slower pace and be gentle to take good care of your smile.
Using the right motion, this is an easy advice to follow too. You want to use up and down motions to clean your teeth when brushing. You can brush side to side to cover more space too. Circular motions are the weakest of the brushing techniques, you can use it scarcely but do not rely on it too much. When brushing does not forget to clean your tongue and cheeks, they can accumulate plaque and tartar too.
Clean your teeth daily, constancy is the key. As stated before, cleaning your teeth at least 3 times a day is what makes a good dental hygiene. Do not ignore this step if you want perfect teeth, stop having dirty teeth for most hours. That good habit will get rid of bad breath if you do it correctly.
Besides brushing your teeth
After brushing you should use dental floss, this will help you clean between your teeth. Food debris tends to get stuck there and a toothbrush cannot reach the right spot. So dental floss is the perfect item to do the job. Remember using a couple of inches instead of wasting yards of floss. As for technique remember to be gentle and take your time to avoid cutting your gums. I wil surprise you how many patients come after an unfortunate accident involving floss.
After flossing use mouthwash to rinse your mouth. If you pick antiseptic mouthwash you will be golden. It will help you wash your teeth and kill all germs and bacteria. Fun fact, companies advertise that they mouthwash kill 99% of bacteria, the statement is not 100% because any costumer that take that literally can sue. Just a weird fact that I find really funny.
Now that you are a pro at brushing, do not forget to complete your dental hygiene routine. Use mouthwash and floss to finish the job. Other than that we suggest to visit your dentists at least twice a year for regular cleaning.
