How do I
Here is my take on how to
Using a soft-bristled toothbrush,
place an ADA approved, fl uoridated
toothpaste on the brush.
Brush the chewing surface of
each tooth brushing gently back
and forth. Starting on the biting
surfaces allows the toothpaste to
thin out and guards against the
tendency to “over-scrub” areas
where the gums may be thinner
and more prone to recession.
Next angle the bristles against
your gums at a 45 degree angle on
the outer surface of the teeth.
Move the brush back and forth
gently in short (tooth wide)
strokes, or better yet in small
circles. If you have trouble with
this type of small movements you
should consider buying an electric
Move from tooth to tooth
continuing the small circles. The
bristles should enter the space
between the tooth and gum and
between the teeth to loosen plaque.
Brush the tongue side surface of
each tooth, again with the brush
bristles angled at 45 degrees to the
tooth. This is more challenging, so
you should take a little more time
and pay more attention to the
inside surfaces. Use the tip of the
brush to clean behind each front
tooth, both top and bottom.
Finally, brushing or scraping the
tongue is helpful to keep mouth
odors to a minimum for an overall
cleaner, fresher mouth.
