Kids Dental Insurance – Correctly Brushing and Flossing Your Teeth Can Take Some Practice. 

Saturday, Apr. 13th 2024 10:20 AM

Sometimes, to do something well, it does take some practice. Make sure you are brushing your teeth correctly; if not, practice brushing your teeth to have good technique. 

Brushing Your Teeth: Brushing your teeth is essential to your oral hygiene routine. Here are the steps to properly brush your teeth:

1. Hold your toothbrush at a slight angle and aim the bristles toward the area where your tooth meets your gum.

2. Gently brush with short back-and-forth motions. Remember to brush the outside, inside, and chewing surfaces of your teeth and your tongue.

3. Use the tip of your brush to clean the inside surfaces of your front teeth, using a gentle up-and-down stroke.

4. Brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice daily – in the morning and before bed.

5. Choose a fluoride toothpaste to help prevent cavities and strengthen your tooth enamel.

6. Replace your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if the bristles are frayed.

Remember, correctly brushing your teeth helps remove food particles and plaque, which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. It’s important to brush your teeth regularly to maintain good oral health.

Flossing your teeth is an important part of your oral hygiene routine. Here are the steps to properly floss your teeth:

1. Start with about 18 inches of floss. Wind most of the floss around the middle finger of one hand and the rest around the middle finger of the other hand.

2. Hold the floss tightly between your thumbs and forefingers and gently insert it between your teeth using a sawing motion.

3. Curve the floss into a C-shape against one tooth and gently slide it into the space between the gum and the tooth.

4. Hold the floss tightly against the tooth and gently rub the side of the tooth, moving the floss away from the gum with an up-and-down motion.

5. Repeat this process on the rest of your teeth, using a fresh section of floss for each one.

6. Remember to floss behind your back teeth and rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash after flossing.

Remember, flossing helps remove food particles and plaque from between your teeth, which your toothbrush can’t reach. It’s important to floss at least once a day to maintain good oral health.
