Time To Brush Your Teeth

We all know that brushing your teeth is important to good oral health and it seems easy enough, but do you really know how to properly brush your teeth for maximum effectiveness? To help you stay on top of your oral health and help you avoid expensive surgeries, we have compiled a list of tips to properly care for your chompers.

3 Times A Day

While some people only brush their teeth once a day, the majority of people strive for a twice a day cleaning. While this is a good start to clean teeth, brushing three times a day is ideal for keeping your teeth bright, shiny, and healthy. Brushing is best after each meal, which is why we recommend this trifecta of oral health.

Brush Time

You got in and hit each side of your teeth with the brush, but did you actually spend enough time brushing? If you divide your mouth into 4 sections (bottom left, bottom right, top left, top right) you should be spending about 30 seconds per quadrant.

Too Much

Don’t get crazy with the brushing. Too much brushing can wear down your tooth enamel, making them more prone to cavities. The same can be said about brushing too hard, use a light touch when brushing your teeth, you are trying to remove plaque not cement.
