Do you want a top-notch brushing routine so you can have a top-notch smile? If so, our dentist, Dr. Robert Marder, is happy to help you. Today, he would be happy to give you the tips you need to have a proper and effective brushing routine. Having an improper technique can harm your teeth and gums more than help them. The tips your dentist would like to give you are:
-Brush every morning and night for two minutes each time. If necessary, set a timer for yourself.
-Use short and gentle strokes as you scrub your teeth.
-Be careful brushing along your gums because brushing too vigorously can harm and irritate the gums.
-Focus on deeply cleaning the hard-to-reach teeth and the dental restorations you have. These teeth and restorations need attention, otherwise, complications can occur.
-Use this checklist as you brush:
Brush the outer surfaces of the top teeth.
Brush the outer surfaces of the bottom teeth.
Brush the inner surfaces of the top teeth.
Brush the inner surfaces of the bottom teeth.
Brush the chewing surfaces of every tooth.
