Proper Brushing Essential for Good Dental Health

Brushing the teeth twice daily is the recommended norm by most dental professionals but the quality of brushing is equally, if not more, important. Many people tend to hurry the procedure, fail to brush correctly or use the wrong toothbrush. 

A dentist can advise you as to which toothbrush is best and how to clean the teeth properly but the basic guidelines are:

• Use a soft-bristled toothbrush

• Use small circular motions not back and forth

• Never brush too aggressively

Proper brushing should take “between two and three minutes” and toothbrushes should be replaced every three months or when worn or frayed. More tips on proper dental care can be found at
