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.
