Who knew that one could make “mistakes” while brushing their teeth? Unfortunately, as our routine becomes second nature, we tend to miss the finer details that come with paying attention to our routine.
So at DentistsRUs, we want to help ensure that your oral care is being properly addressed with these teeth brushing reminders!
Pick the Right Tool for the Job
Whether your toothbrush is too well worn to be effective any longer, or the bristles are too hard and causing damage to your teeth and gums, or perhaps your child’s toothbrush is too large for their mouth …there are simple toothbrush replacement solutions to all these areas that can be cause for concern when it comes to improperly brushing your teeth.
The Right Time and Duration of Teeth Brushing
Brushing your teeth after each meal, and brushing for a duration of 1-2 minutes are also important factors in ensuring you are brushing your teeth right. A quick rinse will not get rid of food debris in your teeth, so if you are going to take the time to brush …do it at the right time and for the right duration for optimal care.
There’s Such a Thing as Brushing TOO Much
Brushing too often and for too long cause also lead to concerns. Whether your gums are beginning to become sensitive, or your teeth are – these can be signs that you’re brushing too often, too vigorously, or with the wrong tool.
Purchase the Right Product for Your Oral Concerns
Sensitive teeth? Concerns with plaque? Yellowing smile? There are a variety of toothpastes and mouthwash products that can treat your concerns every time you brush. So ensure you are purchasing the right product for your oral concerns, and don’t have the entire family uses the same products – as this could be harmful also.
