Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
Posted Aug 24 2008 12:11am
Brushing your teeth dislodges and removes decomposing food and plaque accumulated since your last brushing.
It does that with the digging action of the bristle ends when you apply the brush firmly against the places to be cleaned and move the brush up and down with short strokes.
Press hard enough to force some of the bristles into crevices and pits without injuring your gums.
Dental professionals recommend a toothbrush with soft, round bristles that can clean out plaque without damaging gums.
Brush all of the surfaces of all of your teeth
twice a day for
two minutes each brushing.
Brush your gums, your tongue, and the roof of your mouth for good circulation.
Brushing every surface of every tooth and your gums after eating are your primary defenses against periodontal disease. Seeing your dentist or periodontist regularly is your next best defense.
What I know for sure is that it's all connected.
