Brushing Your Teeth, Right & Wrong Answers.

February 11, 2015

Brushing your teeth is an important part of your dental care routine. For a healthy mouth and smile the ADA recommends you:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily.

  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth.

  • Make sure to use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpast

 

 

 

The proper brushing technique is to:

 

  • Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums. 

  • Gently move the brush back and forth in short (tooth-wide) strokes. 

  • Brush the outer surfaces, the inner surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.

  • To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes.

  • Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and keep your breath fresh.
