How do you brush your teeth properly?

How do you brush your teeth properly is an important question to ask yourself. Regular, thorough brushing is a very important step in preventing tooth decay & gum disease. Brushing will remove all the substance that promote tooth decay & plaque that can cause gum disease. Ideally you need to keep the area where your teeth meet your gums clean.

The American Dental Association’s brushing basics include : Brush your teeth at least twice a day. When you brush, don’t rush. Take enough time to do a good job.

Proper brushing requires: fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush that fits your mouth.
