Back to Brushing Basics!

It’s no denying that the foundation of excellent oral health lies in your toothbrush! Yes, that toothbrush by the sink holds your mouth and teeth’s future. For healthy teeth and gums, our South Brunswick dental team shares the basics of brushing!

 The proper brushing technique comprises of the following:

  • Your toothbrush should be at 45 degree angle to your gums.
  • Move the brush back and forth in gentle, short strokes.
  • Start with the outer surfaces and proceed to the inner surfaces as well as the chewing surfaces.
  • Hold the brush vertically and make up-and-down strokes to clean the inside surfaces of your front teeth.
  • Lastly, lightly brush the far side of your tongue to stave bacteria off.

We recommend brushing your teeth twice a day for roughly 3 minutes. Flossing will help remove food particles in between your teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach.
