Bear these 8 easy teeth brushing tips in mind – Centurion Dental Care
No rushing to brush after meals
The ph levels in our mouth have to maintain the neutral 7.0 to stay healthy, but when the ph level drops, it gives plaque the opportunity to develop. When brushing teeth immediately after eating, the mouth’s ph level is lower and causes erosion. It’s best to wait 30 minutes gap in-between meals.
Change your routine
Your Dentist in Centurion would recommend changing the start point of brushing because as you reach the last part, you may end up being tired or even board and not brush with the same energy as you did at the start. Changing up the way you brush your teeth can even the level of attention you give your entire mouth and better cleaning results.
Avoid aggressive brushing
Some people have the tendency to put lots of pressure on the gums and teeth while brushing, which usually results in strain and damage to the gums.
Don’t be in too much of a hurry when brushing your teeth because the teeth need at least about two minutes of brushing for a proper clean and better results.
Brush all your teeth
Most people brush their front teeth more than the rest of their teeth, but it’s important that all the teeth be brushed especially the inner sides and the rear teeth (molars), to eliminate bacteria.
You can clean your teeth throughout the day by eating fruit and raw veggies. Fruit and vegetables are not only good for your diet but are also able to naturally clean teeth due to its natural abrasive feel.
Don’t forget to floss
Flossing is a great way to get rid of any loose plaque and bacteria in the hard to reach parts of the teeth.
Replace your brush regularly
It’s important to replace your toothbrush every three to four months to maintain its ability to thoroughly clean your teeth. For only R60.00 purchase a new Curoprox toothbrush at Smiles4All Dental Studio today
