Dental Hygiene Advice: Five Top Tips on Brushing Your Teeth

We all know that we should brush our teeth every day. But how many of us can honestly say we are 100% certain that we brush our teeth completely thoroughly and effectively every single day?

Neglecting dental hygiene can lead to gum disease, lost teeth and halitosis, among many other oral and dental problems, so it is important to brush your teeth well and take care of your mouth.

Healthcare4All, a Yorkshire-based online healthcare company, offering a range of dental supplies, has the following advice on brushing your teeth:

(1) Brush Twice A Day

You should brush your teeth twice a day, every day, to maintain good oral hygiene. Neglecting to brush your teeth, either in the morning or the evening, leaves food residue build up on your teeth and the bacteria that naturally reside in your mouth to feed and multiply, which can lead to oral hygiene problems.

(2) Dental Supplies: What to Buy?

A good toothbrush is the bare minimum you need to maintain good oral hygiene. Dental hygienists also recommend you floss every day. Keep spare dental floss and toothbrushes in case you need them for travelling or need to replace any items. A dental irrigator can help in the treatment of gum disease by blasting your teeth clean with a water jet.

(3) Brush For Two Minutes

Dental hygienists recommend that two minutes is the minimum amount of time it takes to clean your teeth thoroughly with a standard toothbrush.

(4) Brush Every Nook and Cranny

Concentrate on brushing all your teeth really thoroughly. Don't just move toothpaste around your mouth. You should ensure that you have covered every side of every tooth when brushing, and reached into all the gaps between your teeth. Flossing can also help with this.

(5) Replace your Toothbrush Regularly

You should replace your toothbrush or brush attachment at least every three months. If the bristles begin to spread out on the toothbrush head, then you need to replace your toothbrush.
