Tricks to improve your brushing technique

Brushing is arguably the most important part of dental hygiene. No dental care is done without you taking your toothbrush out to clean that beautiful smile of yours. What most of patients fail is in not brushing their teeth enough, if you want that white smile, you have to work for it to deserve it. That includes also your brushing technique, is a matter of both quantity and quality. Let us show you some tricks on how to improve your brushing game.


First of all, let’s pick the right toothbrush. One mistake many patients commit is to get a hard bristle toothbrush. This is such a bad mistake because you do not need hard bristles to clean better. Hard bristle toothbrushes can seriously damage your smile as the can strip away your brush and enamel. Both are important for the aesthetic of your smile and their health. Picking a soft bristle toothbrush it is far better for taking good care of your teeth.


As for brands I always suggest to my patients to pick anything with the ADA seal of approval. This is a sign that you are acquiring a high quality product tasted and approved for. If you are in town by any chance do not miss the nice offer you can find in pharmacies in Los Algodones for dental products such as dental floss, toothbrush and mouthwash. Step up your brushing game by getting the perfect toothbrush for you at a nice price.


Slow and steady wins the race


When it comes to brushing your teeth there is no better advice than to take it slow. As we stated before, hard bristle can dame your teeth. The same goes for the force in each stroke, too hard and your teeth will get harm. Instead, use gentle and slow strokes to brush your teeth at a nice pace. 2 minutes should be more than enough to brush your entire denture.


A nice bonus tip is using tooth paste the right way. Using large amount of toothpaste is a bad habit when brushing your teeth. Use just a little bit to wash your teeth, keep in mind that it have abrasive chemicals. The key is always moderation and consistency. Brush your teeth twice a day and after every meal to keep them nice and clean.


Cleaning your toothbrush


Brushing your teeth does not only include the act itself. You have to also take good care of your toothbrush in order to keep a nice smile. A toothbrush in bad shape won’t clean your teeth as good and can instead ruin your smile. Wash your toothbrush after using it by boiling it in water and afterward dry it good. Keep it in a dry storage and remember to change it every 2 or 3 months.


What about electric toothbrushes?


Electric toothbrushes are a nice addition to your arsenal of dental hygiene. They can clean so much better than a manual one but comes with certain catches. They are more expensive and they require either battery or charge up and they need more maintenance. Keep in mind the pros and cons when getting one, but I cannot recommend enough a good electric toothbrush.  I would say that if you have the funds then go for it, you won’t regret it.
