Tips For Brushing Your Teeth

How you brush your teeth matters a great deal and it’s a key message as part of #dentalhealthweek

  1. Squeeze a pea-sized blob of toothpaste onto a soft bristled brush.
  2. Brush gently using circular motions or hold still on each tooth for 3 seconds if using an electric toothbrush. If you brush too hard it can harm your gums.
  3. Count all 6 segments as you go; Inside, Outside & Chewing surfaces for both top and bottom.
  4. Pay special attention to where the tooth meets the gum. This is where plaque builds up.
  5. Finish by brushing your tongue to remove bacteria.
  6. Avoid rinsing so your toothpaste can keep working longer.
  7. Keep brushing for at least two minutes and do this morning and night.
  8. Visit us regularly for a professional clean and to prevent any problems.
