Using the Correct Equipment in Maintaining Your Dental Health

Thursday, Apr. 11th 2024 10:02 AM

When it comes to your dental health, it would help if you started using the right tools to do the job correctly. Use toothpaste with fluoride and a soft-bristled toothbrush that fits your mouth comfortably. Consider using an electric or battery-operated toothbrush if you have arthritis or other problems that make it difficult to brush effectively. A side benefit is they can help reduce plaque and a mild form of gum disease (gingivitis) more than a manual brushing dose.

Here are some additional brushing tips to help maintain your dental health:

  1. Brush at least twice a day for two minutes each time.
  2. Use gentle circular or back-and-forth motions to clean all surfaces of your teeth and gums.
  3. Remember to brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.
  4. Replace your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if the bristles become frayed.
  5. Avoid brushing too hard, as this can damage your enamel and irritate your gums.
  6. Consider using a mouthwash or dental floss to clean hard-to-reach areas between your teeth.
