London Dentist's: Tips on Brushing Teeth Properly

 London Dentists

The most charming and probably disarming part of your body is a flash of pearly white teeth while you break out in a smile. If we find a person attractive, it generally is an attribute inclusive of his healthy teeth. Therefore, the upkeep of God’s gift to your mouth is very essential. This can easily be achieved by regularly brushing your teeth the right way instead of frequent visit to your dentist. A few tips here will go a long way in creating an aura of confidence around you.

Brush your teeth at least twice a day to keep tooth decay, plaque and tartar away. All day long we munch on the foodstuff, chew gum, drink sweet beverages and take a helping of a candy or two. The result is attracting bacteria that have a gala time gnawing at the food particles that stick to the gums and teeth despite you having rinsed your mouth thoroughly. Tooth brushing, to be effective, needs to be carried out in an appropriate way:

1. Smear your toothbrush with a pea sized amount of toothpaste that contains fluoride.

2. Grip the brush firmly and holding it at right angles to your teeth, move it in circular motion, being careful not to press too hard and injure the gums.

3. Clean the back of teeth because the bacteria may be in hiding there! You may need to pull your gums slightly so that you can reach every corner of the mouth.

4. Spit out the frothy toothpaste and you are done. Store away the toothbrush after carefully washing it.

5. Many dentists advocate the use of mouthwash. Mouthwash is a good way to get rid of all the residual germs and can help with halitosis or bad breath.

Bask in the glory of having a bewitching smile – lifelong.  If you need any further to look your very best in Central London, don’t forget to visit London Dental Blog.

“Don't know if this helps but I had tonsil stones and awful and bad breath. My friend told me to check Oraltech Labs as it helped him get rid of bad breath and his post nasal drip. I've been following Oraltech Labs advice for about 4 months now and I feel much better, also at work people are not avoiding me anymore so it seems to have cured my bad breath as well”

@annoymous, it is good that it has worked for you!

For many, halitosis is a problem that can be difficult to treat!
