To keep your teeth and gums healthy is essential to have a good brushing technique. It is also important to choose a toothbrush with high quality.
Effective and gentle cleaning
If you use a toothbrush too hard, and uses a technique wrong, it can damage your gums. For this reason, always choose a toothbrush or soft texture medium, narrow head on the tip, right to access to the back of the mouth.
Avoid brushing directly after eating, could damage the enamel, as it softens during the meal and is more vulnerable. A worn toothbrush will not clean just one in good condition, and it is therefore important to change the toothbrush when the filaments are worn.
Just create routine and clean teeth in the same order every day helps to reduce the risk of forgetting some tooth surfaces during brushing. A good rule is to start with the hardest to reach areas. Ask your dentist or hygienist for advice.
Brush outer faces, the inner and the occlusal surface of each tooth with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, twice daily, for at least two minutes.
Hold the brush at a 45 degree angle, so that the filaments reach either the gum line. Brush applying light pressure, with small movements.
After brushing, rinse with a little water, by passing the water with foam dough about 30 seconds between the teeth. Spit the water, but rinse again, and you should keep fluoride in the mouth to make the most of its preventive effect.
