Proper Brushing Technique
When it comes to proper brushing technique, you should consider:
Using a soft toothbrush
Toothpaste with fluoride
Correct angle for brushing in a circular pattern
It is advisable to brush at least twice a day using a soft toothbrush which makes it easier to remove the plaque below the gum line before the periodontal disease starts.
Brushing is important but the bristles of the brush do not reach between teeth and most periodontal diseases start between the teeth. To keep your teeth clean and healthy, you must remove the plaque between the teeth at least once a day. That’s why we recommend dental flossing.
Besma Dental Family Centre’s Recommendations
Dr. Rashid also recommends rinsing with a fluoridated mouthwash, watching what you eat, and chewing sugar-free gum after meals when you are unable to brush. You should visit Besma Dental Family Centre at least twice a year to maintain good oral hygiene, clean breath, and a healthy smile. Only the professional cleaning at our clinic will remove calculus from places that your toothbrush and floss have missed.
