Brushing Technique for a healthy teeth and smile

Brushing your teeth is an important part of your dental care routine. For a healthy mouth and smile, we need proper brushing technique.

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
  • Make sure to use an IDA accepted fluoride toothpaste.

The proper brushing technique is to:

  • Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums.
  • Gently move the brush back and forth in short strokes.
  • Brush the outer surfaces, the inner surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.
  • To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several up and down strokes.

Brushing your teeth is only a part of a complete dental care routine. We should also make sure to:

  • Clean between teeth daily once a day. Use dental floss or interdental brush for this so that it helps remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.
  • Eat a balanced diet that limits sugary beverages and snacks.
  • See your dentist regularly for prevention and treatment of oral disease.
  • Do a regular ultrasonic scaling/cleaning of your teeth.
  • Brush the tongue from back to front to remove odour-producing bacteria.
