Toothbrush tips

07 June 2020 . Posted by Laurelyn in Tips and Tricks

Selecting a toothbrush is a bit like buying a car – do you prefer an automatic or a manual one?

With brushes, that’s not where it ends because technique is everything.
Power toothbrushes with round heads are used one tooth at a time, following the curve of the gumline and tipping in between teeth.

Manual toothbrushing involves placing a soft brush at a 45 degree angle to the tooth and vibrating the brush in short back-and-forth strokes or small circles.

It’s important to brush for at least 2 minutes with a small pea-sized amount of low abrasion fluoride toothpaste and avoid heavy-handed scrubbing to prevent tooth wear.

Remember: it’s not just what you use but how you use it.
