What is the right way to brush your teeth?
Proper brushing takes at least two minutes. Most adults do not come close to brushing the full 120 seconds. To get a feel for the time, try using a stop watch. In order to properly brush your teeth one must use short and gentle stokes. When brushing, you must pay close attention to the gum line and hard to reach areas around fillings, crowns or other restorations. Be sure to concentrate on cleaning each section as follows:
- Clean the outer surfaces of your upper teeth and your lower teeth.
- Clean the inner surfaces of you upper teeth and your lower teeth.
- Clean the chewing surfaces.
- Be sure to brush your tongue to freshen breath.
