Brushing Your Teeth the Correct Way

Even though most people brush their teeth every day – and often multiple times per day – it’s not as easy as you’d think to brush your teeth the right way, the way that will give you and your teeth the best results. But, thankfully, for all the mistakes made when brushing teeth, there are fairly simple solutions.

Here is a list of the most common tooth brushing mistakes and how to correct them:

  • Using the wrong toothbrush – Dentists say it’s important for a toothbrush to have soft bristles, as hard bristles can wear down tooth structure over time.
  • Using an old toothbrush – A toothbrush should be changed at least every 3-4 months.
  • Rushing – It is also recommended that brushing should last at least 2 minutes, and be completed twice a day. Do not cut the brushing time short.
  • Forgetting the gum line – The bacteria that causes gum disease and tooth decay resides at the point where your teeth meet your gums. Make sure to brush this gum line every time you brush your teeth.
  • Forgetting the other oral care necessities – At least once a day, after brushing your teeth, also floss and rinse with mouthwash. This daily “extra special” brushing will do wonders for your teeth and gums.

The Quarters apartments in Lady Lake, FL, have beautiful bathrooms where our residents are able to follow the above tips and take the best care possible of their oral health.
