Teeth Brushing Tips, Teeth Flossing Tips, Dentist

Brushing:

  • Always move your toothbrush in a short, gentle, circular motion.
  • Hold your toothbrush at a 45 degree angle when brushing. Try to get the bristle tips directly under the gumline.
  • Pay attention to detail. Always try to brush the outer, inner and chewing surfaces of your teeth.
  • Brush your tongue. This removes bacteria and freshens your breath.

Flossing:

  • Use around 18 inches of floss. Wind most of it around the middle finger on both hands.
  • Use a gentle, sawing motion when sliding the floss between your teeth.
  • Move the floss in an up-and-down motion while holding it against the tooth.
  • Always remember to floss the backside of your tooth.
