About dental brushing
Useful information for tooth brushing
Teeth brushing removes food debris and bacteria, preventing tartar and cavities formation.
How to brush your teeth properly?
- theoretically does not matter what kind of toothbrush or toothpaste you use (cheaper or more expensive).
- the brush should be used dried ( don’t wet the brush before brushing).
- paste should cover half of the toothbrush.
- toothbrush should be held horizontally, with the bristles pointing toward the gums. Turn slightly to the tooth and then return to the original position. The process should be 5 times repeated for each group of teeth.
- Brushing starts with the back teeth, top or bottom and advances to the opposite side.
- Brushing should be done on all sides: on the outside, on the inside and the chewing part.
- Rinse out your mouth with cold water and force the water to pass through your teeth.
- Brushing should last about 5 minutes. During brushing our mouth will be filled with foam that can be spited. You can continue brushing after spiting the foam.
- In the end brush your tongue in a back-to-front sweeping motion to remove bacteria from its surface.
- During brushing don’t press very hard on the brush to avoid injuring your gums and teeth.
- After brushing, pass the brush under warm water until it gets clean. Beat the brush on the sink to remove excess water and paste. Toothbrush should be kept outdoors and away from other toothbrushes.
- A toothbrush should be changed every 3-6 months when bristles curve.
It is used when the toothbrush does not reach the space between teeth, where food removal is very difficult. Insert the floss between teeth with a “polishing” movement. The procedure is daily recommended for interdental spaces after brushing. Click the links below for further information :
