Proper Dental Hygiene, Brushing and Flossing Your Teeth

Wednesday, May. 26th 2010 4:19 PM

There is a right way to brush and floss your teeth.  Knowing how to brush and floss the right way is a big part of good oral health.  Use a soft toothbrush to scrub lightly with a dab of toothpaste, rinse it, and polish it dry with a soft towel.  Brush the outer tooth surfaces, the inner tooth surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth. The best way to brush your teeth is in little circles  go around and around until you have covered every surface of every tooth.  Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.  Brushing and flossing precautions: Must be done thoroughly but not too vigorously, as rough movements can irritate or damage sensitive oral tissues.  Brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste is your best bet when it comes to keeping your teeth in tip-top shape. A worn toothbrush will not do a good job of cleaning your teeth.

    You would think most people would know how to brush and floss correctly. However many do not so thank you for posting this and reminding people that our every day brushing and flossing is so important in maintain good oral health and less expensive dental work.

    A Apple a day may keep the doctor way…. But brushing and flossing twice a day is what will keep you from only having to see your dentist twice a year.
