Use These Tips to Improve Your Brushing and Flossing

Posted on 3/20/2023 by Singing River Dentistry Madison
Use These Tips to Improve Your Brushing and FlossingBrushing and flossing is an art that most of us were taught or learned in the early stages of life. It is a routine practice we do daily. What most people do not know is that, even when you brush and floss daily, but you do it improperly, you cannot have healthy teeth and gums. How you do it is what matters. Good oral hygiene requires the right technique and frequency. You should not brush less or go overboard as too much brushing can damage the teeth. Here are some tips that will help you keep a healthy smile.

Flossing Once a Day

Use dental floss or string for flossing. Wrap dental floss string around the teeth and rub upwards and downwards to the gum line. When flossing clean between the base of the teeth and the gum, take care not to harm your gum. Repeat this process for all teeth and change the section of the floss that you use for the different teeth spaces.

Choose the Right Toothbrush

When acquiring your toothbrush, it has to be comfortable in the hands and fit in your mouth well. Get a toothbrush that features soft bristles. The toothbrush should be able to get easily into the back areas of the mouth. Electronic toothbrushes are also recommended and are said to perform better.

Choose right tooth paste

Use toothpaste with fluoride for brushing your teeth. A dentist may recommend a type of toothpaste depending on your dental condition. Talk to a dentist about what toothpaste you should use.

Brush your Teeth Well

Brush your teeth thoroughly on all teeth surfaces. Do this also to your tongue. Remember to be gentle and not to harm the enamel and gums. Rinse your mouth properly after brushing. A mouthwash can also help with teeth and gum rinsing. Visit us to get more tips on brushing and flossing properly in order to maintain healthy, strong, and good-looking teeth and gums.
