Dental Care Check – Are You Brushing the Right Way?

dca-blog_basic-dental-care-blue-man

Great dental care starts with a toothbrush. For a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums, brush at least twice every day. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends using a soft-bristled toothbrush that is the right size and shape for your mouth. Choosing an appropriate brush ensures that you can reach all areas of your mouth easily. After three or four months of use, discard your old toothbrush and use a new one. Worn or frayed bristles can no longer clean your teeth properly. When choosing your toothpaste, look for the ADA seal of approval.

Brushing Your Teeth the Right Way

  1. Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gums and brush back and forth gently, using short tooth-wide or circular strokes
  2. Tilt your toothbrush and use up-and-down strokes to clean the inside surfaces of your front teeth
  3. Brush every tooth surface, including the outer, inner, and chewing surfaces
  4. To keep your breath smelling fresh and eliminate bacteria, brush your tongue

Proper Dental Care Goes Beyond Brushing

Brushing alone is not enough to ensure optimal dental health. Dentists say that you should include the following measures in your dental care routine:

  • Clean between your teeth and under the gum line every day using dental floss or an interdental cleaner to remove plaque and bacteria your toothbrush can’t reach.
  • When possible, brush immediately after eating starchy or sugary snacks.
  • Eat a healthy, nutritious diet
  • Limit snacks between meals

Schedule Regular Appointments with An Affordable Dentist in Crown Point

Dentists can identify any early problems before they become serious, and recommend products and procedures that can help you protect your smile. You should also schedule professional cleanings with your dental hygienist at least once a year. If you haven’t had a dental exam in a while, schedule one now.
