How should I brush my teeth?
Tilt your toothbrush to a 45-degree angle so that you brush your gums as well. Brush your teeth gently in circles and make sure you brush the inside, outside and the chewing surfaces of your teeth. Spit out the toothpaste, don’t swallow it and avoid rinsing — this gives the fluoride more time to strengthen your teeth. Ideally, wait around 30 minutes after eating and drinking to brush your teeth.
If you or your family have trouble using a manual toothbrush, you may consider purchasing an electronic toothbrush.
Otherwise if you are unsure of which type of brush will be best suited, your dentist can help you at your next appointment.
