How To Clean Teeth Properly

is brushing your teeth regularly. Brushing the teeth protects against plaque that causes tooth decay, removes stains, protects against gum disease and freshens breath. To get the most benefit from brushing your teeth, it is important to brush your teeth for at least two minutes, twice a day. Proper dental cleaning, along with a healthy diet, can help prevent cavities and other oral problems.


How to clean teeth properly


Choose a toothbrush suitable for the size and shape of your mouth. Ask your dentist for advice if needed. Use a rather soft brush and change it every 3 months.


Dampen the toothbrush and put a little fluoride toothpaste, about a centimeter from the paste on the brush. Fluoride strengthens teeth and helps prevent tooth decay .


Put the brush in your mouth and hold it at a 45-degree angle to your gums.


Move the brush up and down in short movements, making sure that the brush moves across the gum line to the edge of the chewing teeth.


Repeat this movement to clean the outer and inner surfaces of the teeth and the molar.


Run the brush on your tongue and down the cheeks with a gentle motion. Bacteria can build up there, causing bad breath.


Brush your teeth in gentle, circular motions, one tooth after the other. Do not forget the inside of the teeth.


Continue brushing for two full minutes. Repeat cleaning twice a day, or as recommended by the dentist.


Use dental floss to clean the spaces between teeth.


Rinse your mouth well with water, then with an anti-microbial oral solution if desired. Rinse the brush with water and allow it to air dry
