Brushing Your Teeth

03 Mar 2014
Good oral health begins with knowing how to brush and floss. Toothbrushing removes plaque and food particles from the outer, inner and biting surfaces of your teeth.

Every day brush your teeth gently with a soft-bristle brush and fluoride toothpaste. We recommend at least twice a day. Worn out toothbrushes cannot properly clean your teeth and may injure your gums. Usually toothbrushes need to be replaced every three to four months.

Brush your teeth on all sides with small round motions and short back and forth strokes, a gentle/delicate "scrubbing" motion. Take the time to brush gently along the gum line. Brushing your tongue will also help freshen your breath and clean your mouth by removing bacteria. An effective brushing takes 2 to 3 minutes. Time yourself and see how you do!
