You're Doing It Wrong: Brushing Your Teeth

September 9, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

Brushing your teeth is seriously essential in everyday life. It’s important to keep up with your oral hygiene so that your teeth and gums remain healthy. If you don’t brush your teeth regularly, plaque will begin to build up and that leads to cavities, tooth decay and gum disease. Believe it or not, there’s actually a proper way to brush your teeth and you might have been doing it wrong your entire life.

You should use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth. Only brush for two minutes (no more and no less) and twice a day. This gives you about 30 seconds in each section of your mouth. It’s important to hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and use short tooth-wide strokes away from your gums. Don’t forget to brush the inside and outside surfaces, along with the chewing surfaces and your tongue. Also, remember to replace your toothbrush every three months!
