In order for your toothbrush to provide you the necessary oral health care benefits, it is important that you are always using ideal tooth brushing techniques. If for any reason you are brushing your teeth improperly or missing spots in your mouth, your oral health care will not receive any benefits.

To enhance your oral health, you need to ensure your oral health care is at its best, which includes improving your tooth brushing techniques. Speak with your dentist about product recommendations and suggestions to ensure you’re using a safe and effective toothbrush that has soft bristles and can easily reach all corners of your mouth. To brush correctly, always take your time and brush each and every tooth for 2 minutes a day twice-daily. Always make sure you’re brushing on every side of a tooth, including the insides of your teeth. Use small strokes and brush gently. In addition, bacteria can manifest on your tongue, so be sure to clean your tongue as well. For additional help cleaning between teeth, using interdental cleaners such as a threaded floss or water flosser.
