Tooth Brushing Techniques

Saturday, October 17th, 2015

357249_blogBrushing your teeth is the best way to combat build up of plaque, tooth decay, bad breath and gum disease. It’s incredibly easy to do, takes only a few minutes and should already be a part of everybody’s daily routine. By brushing your teeth twice a day, morning and night, you can stave off a whole assortment of oral health nightmares, all the while making your teeth and most importantly your smile sparkle. Brushing should be done by everyone regardless of their diet, but for those who consume a lot of sugary, sweet foods it is especially important. This is because those kinds of foods contain sugars and starches that are quick to cause plaque build up and eat at the enamel, causing tooth decay.


Flossing your teeth should be done alongside brushing as flossing daily helps to remove the plaque that builds up between the teeth. If you don’t brush or floss the plaque will grow and eventually harden into tartar. Plaque and tartar build-up has been linked to heart disease and other serious conditions so it’s not something we can afford to ignore.

Brushing the teeth

When brushing your teeth it’s important to use the right tools and equipment so that the process is as effective as possible and maximises the amount of plaque removal. A soft bristled toothbrush is recommended and fluoride toothpaste is shown to prevent tooth decay considerably. There are many different types of toothpaste on the market today, with products catering to a whole range of different needs, such as those with sensitive teeth, those with stained teeth and even natural toothpastes that are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. This means that there’s absolutely no excuse or argument against brushing.

608718_blogOne of the most important ingredients in your oral hygiene is your toothbrush, because if you get this right, you will be well on the way to keeping plaque, tooth decay and gum disease at bay. Don’t be ashamed to ask your dentist to help you with finding the right brush and when you get it, ask if you are using it right. Everyone’s mouths are different in Leeds and when choosing your brush, make sure your get a brush with bristles that suit yours. There are many different styles and shapes to hand-held brushes, so you may have to try a few out first before settling on the one for you. Of course though, electric brushes have become most peoples choice, not only because they do all of the work, but because of their efficiency at cleaning the surfaces of your teeth. Some rotate, some pulse up and down and other are specifically designed to break down plaque and tartar; the water-pick design will even fire a jet of water that can remove foodstuffs from between the teeth and below the gum-line. In any brush you choose, remember that the efficiency of the heads will diminish over time and will need to be changed after a while. Finally, bear in mind that your teeth change as you grow older so you will maybe have to change your brush as well to cater for this.

Dentists in Leeds will always bang on to you the need for good oral hygiene as it limits the amount of extensive reconstruction work they will have to carry out on you when your mouth starts to get problems.

If you think about it, looking after your teeth shouldn’t be hard- just look at the products you can buy these days that virtually do the work for you.

Toothbrushes are the most important thing to get right in the beginning so you need to make your choice wisely; every mouth is different, so has different requirements which can make your choice of brush difficult at first- ask your dentist about how sensitive your gums are so that the bristles suit you and are not overly abrasive.

Then after this your choice splits dramatically between hand held and electric brushes.Both have their advantages, both options will get the job done so shop around at first until you get the one that works for you. Another important factor is that brushes change, so they need to be changed regularly.
