Brushing the Teeth

Brushing is indeed the most important aspect of oral hygiene. One should religiously follow the golden rule of brushing the teeth twice a day. Though, the surprising fact is that not much people are aware of the proper brushing technique. So what exactly is the right way of brushing, learn it here:

How to Brush Correctly?

Proper brushing takes just two minutes to finish the task but most of the people do not provide even that much of time to their brushing. So if you want to develop a habit of brushing at least two minutes a day, it is best to start off using a stopwatch to keep track of time. Just use short, gentle strokes with special attention to the gum line. Make sure you thoroughly clean each of the section in the denture to have a shiny white smile.

What Type of Toothbrush is Best?

As per most of the dental experts, soft-bristled brushes are the 'best' at removing the debris and plaque from the teeth. In fact, small headed brushes are also a good option as they can easily reach the deep inside areas of denture and mouth. Now-a-days, powered toothbrushes are also available in the market that perform a great job of cleaning the teeth specially for those who are unable to brush properly due to some physical issues.

How Important is the Toothpaste?

A befitting toothpaste as per your dental requirements is an essential. Today there is a wide variety of toothpastes available in the market to serve varied dental requirements. For example, one can easily find specialized toothpastes for cavities, gingivitis, tartar, stained teeth and sensitivity. Though, we would suggest to consult your dentist first, before opting for any of such toothpastes.

When Should the Toothbrush be Replaced?

A toothbrush needs to be replaced when it starts showing to wear. Though, in case you are not able to judge when to replace the brush, simply change it every three month. Be sure you change the brush after you have had cold as the bristles tend to attract germs that can lead to further reinfection.
