Maximizing your daily oral care routine

A thorough and effecting at-home cleaning routine will ensure your long-term oral health. Brushing removes tiny food particles left from daily meals and snacks from between teeth, helping prevent tooth decay.

It’s important to brush twice a day, once after breakfast and most importantly before you go to bed so food isn’t left between teeth all night.

Equally as important is how you brush. You don’t need a long line of toothpaste on your brush, just use about the size of your little fingernail.

1) For the front of your front teeth, angle your brush at about 45 degrees and brush in small circular motions. This also massages your gums while removing plaque
2) For the back of your front teeth, hold your brush vertically and brush up and down ensuring you brush your gums as well as your tooth surface. Brush each tooth individually.
3) For your back teeth use a horizontal forward and back motion across the top of your teeth, this will help the bristles get into the deep grooves. Then tilt your brush to 45 degrees – like for your front teeth – and brush the outside and inside of your back teeth and gums
4) For fresh breath brush your tongue, roof of your mouth and cheeks.

A thorough brushing routine should take between 2 – 3 minutes.
