The Correct Way to Brush Teeth

You know that brushing your teeth regularly is your key to maintaining healthy teeth and gums.  Doing so will prevent not just gum diseases but stroke and heart problems as well.  Brushing your teeth is easy, but did you know that there is a proper way of brushing and that you should make sure to choose the right toothbrush for your teeth?

Brushing your teeth should be done at least twice a day; once in the morning and again in the evening before hitting the sack.  Don't rush it, do it for at least three minutes to ensure long-term dental health.  When choosing a brush, make sure that the bristles are not too hard and find one that fits comfortably in your hand and mouth.

To brush teeth effectively, follow these simple tips.  Take time to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth.  When brushing along gum line, angle the brush slightly toward the gums.  Use a gentle motion when brushing, doing it too roughly will strip teeth of enamel and may damage gums.  Brush your tongue to scrape off bacteria that can cause bad breath.  Replace toothbrush every three to four months.
