Pointers how to brush your teeth

teeth, health, smile, dentistBrushing daily isn’t enough to protect your teeth against decays if you are not doing it properly. Protect your smile and dental health by following the brushing tips listed below.

Key takeaways:

– Check the small print of your toothpaste to ensure it has over 1400PPM fluoride.

– Use an electric toothbrush and brush all areas of your mouth including cheek lining, tongue and lips.

– Stop rinsing your mouth with water or mouthwash because it washes away the fluoride.

Visit the dentist for professional cleaning and brush twice daily.
