What kind of technique do you use when you brush your teeth? According to the American Dental Association,
… for the most thorough cleaning, start with your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gums and brush gently back and forth in tooth-wide strokes. To scrub the inside of your front teeth, hold your toothbrush vertically and make up-and-down strokes. Make sure to get all surfaces of each tooth, and brush your tongue, too!
By using this technique and visiting your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and exams, you can maintain good oral health. Contact us at Brogdon Dental 870-5698 to schedule your next dental appointment.
