How to Brush Your Teeth Properly

While most of us make sure to go for regular health checkups, it is usually exclusive of dental health check. In fact, there are hardly many people who take proper care while brushing their teeth, forget about undertaking any special efforts to maintain their oral health. However, your oral health plays a very important role in maintaining the overall fitness. And oral care begins with proper and regular brushing. While most of us undertake this procedure first thing in the morning, very few follow the correct procedure for the same. In order to help you know how to brush your teeth properly, we have provide step-by-step instructions in the lines below.

  • 1 Extra Soft Or Soft Bristled Manual Toothbrush.
  • Toothpaste, of your choice (preferably one containing fluoride)
  • Water or Mouth Rinse 
  • As the first step in brushing your teeth, you need to moisten your toothbrush slightly and apply a thin layer of toothpaste on the same.
  • Now, start brushing from the upper left molars (back teeth). Make sure to concentrate the brush the front surface of the tooth.
  • You will have to work in a clockwise direction, with the brush covering not more than 2 to 3 teeth at a time.
  • Hold the toothbrush in such a position that it is parallel to your teeth, while the bristles are pointing in the direction of the tissue. Remember, the bristles should be resting slightly below the gum line.
  • In the next step, apply slight pressure on the bristles of the toothbrush, making them bend slightly.
  • Start moving the brush in a circular motion and continue doing so for approximately 20 brush strokes, around 10 seconds.
  • After the 20 strokes are over, you need to roll the bristles away from the gum tissue, in a sweeping motion.
  • Repeat the whole procedure once again, till you feel that all of the front surfaces of the top and bottom teeth have been cleaned.
  • Now, you have to move the toothbrush to the inside surfaces of the teeth and repeat the steps for the upper and lower premolars and molars.
