How To Brush Your Teeth for Better Health

May 30, 2024

You already know the benefits of brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. But here’s the catch: You can brush all you want, but if you don’t use the correct technique, you’re missing out on better oral health.

Choosing a dental practice is a significant decision. The office of Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants boasts a team of highly experienced and skilled professionals who are dedicated to providing top-notch dental care to patients of every age. We believe in open communication, actively involving you in your treatment decisions and ensuring that you understand every aspect of your oral health.

Take these steps for excellence in brushing.

Use the correct toothbrush. Take into account the bristle firmness, head size and handle design. Soft bristles are kind to your enamel and gums. Choose a head size that easily makes contact with the surfaces of each tooth, especially the tricky-to-reach back teeth. Pick a handle that will let you effortlessly maneuver the toothbrush throughout your mouth. Curved handles work well for children and people with manual dexterity issues.

Clear away the plaque and food particles between your teeth using dental floss, interdental picks or interdental brushes. Those tools reach the gaps and crevices that toothbrushes can’t. Then use a water flosser to flush all that debris down the drain. 

Use a toothpaste with fluoride. There are kinds of toothpaste that are targeted to particular needs, such as sensitive teeth, whitening and gum health. 

When brushing outer and inner surfaces, tilt the head at a 45° angle, lightly slide the bristles under the gum tissue, gently wiggle them back and forth a few times, and then use sweeping upward strokes. Brush your biting surfaces with a back-and-forth motion. 

Finish up by brushing your tongue to remove bacteria and food particles lurking in its creases. Some toothbrushes have a tongue scraper on the opposite side of the bristles. Or, use a tongue cleaner; they’re sold at drug stores. 

The office of Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants uses advanced knowledge and technology to perform a complete array of procedures with the utmost care and precision. Our team is made up of friendly, highly trained specialists who are eager to help you feel comfortable and relaxed while receiving superior care. Please call us to schedule an appointment.

Going to the dentist is rarely something you look forward to, however Dr. Low and his team do a fantastic job of making sure it's not something you have to dread. Over five years of service, I've received root canals, fillings, crowns, deep root scaling - you name it; and not only has all of the work held strong, the experience was the best I've had anywhere. The staff treats you like family, and they're always friendly, personable, and concerned for your comfort. Hard to imagine there's anywhere better in Clark County
