How to brush your teeth like a PRO!
How confident are you with your tooth brushing technique?
Many patients brush 2, 3, even up to 5 times per day and STILL have teeth which are not clean...
If you actually put in all that effort brushing 2 minutes, twice per day...you DESERVE a good result.
Our Oral Health Therapist Frohar (read: teeth maintenance expert) is here to show you the technique SHE uses on a daily basis. Play the video with a toothbrush in hand and follow along!
There's going to be a separate video coming up for electric tooth brushes, as the technique is quite different!
We also discuss some common mistakes that happen when brushing:
1. You only clean where the brush actually reaches, so if you miss a spot, it won't be clean!
2. Harder brushes are NOT better, in fact, they're WORSE! They can cause damage to your tooth and gums. Go with a soft one and invest in good technique!
3. There is such thing as brushing too hard! Same reason as number 2 above. If your brush bristles starts looking a bit tired in anything less than THREE months time, you are brushing too hard. (this is also when you should get a new brush).
4. Most tooth brushes you find in the supermarkets have heads which are MUCH TOO BIG. Go with a smaller brush head, because it's much easier to get into all the tight spaces for a thorough clean.
