Brushing your teeth is fairly simple and straightforward. Apply toothpaste to the toothbrush, place the brush head in your mouth, and brush each tooth until done. Effective brushing is actually a bit more complicated than the basic procedure. Knowing the most effective way to brush your teeth is an important step in protecting your smile from cavities and tooth erosion. Our team has gathered some toothbrushing tips to help your more effectively brush your teeth:

– Place the toothbrush head against your gum line at a 45-degree angle and brush in small circular motions. This helps to remove food remnants that will otherwise stay stuck to your teeth and provide a constant presence of cavity-causing acids and bacteria.

– Brush the front, back, and chewing surfaces of your teeth. Focus on one side at a time to ensure that you address each area of your teeth and scrub every tooth clean.

– Follow up by brushing your tongue, which not only helps to freshen your breath, but also removes any lingering harmful bacteria from your oral cavity.
