Mistakes we make while brushing our teeth

Skincare  |  2021-6-10 10:12 itel W6001 3608

Cleaning our teeth is a daily routine we must adhere to but brushing too often, or for not long enough is just one of the other bad habits we carry out unkowningly



Below are Mistakes You Make

1. Using Particular Toothbrush For Too Long

If you brush at least twice a day, that' s 62 times used in 31 days. The bristles of your brush start to strain and it become ineffective. You should consider changing your toothbrush


2. Not Brushing Your Teeth Long Enough

Did you know that brushing for 2 minutes is the recommended time for brushing according to Dentists? consider using a stopwatch when brushing.


3. Rinsing Your Mouth With Water immediately

Many rinse their mouths immediately with water after brushing. This removes the active ingredients of the toothpaste, you need to give your toothpaste enough time to work. If you must rinse immediately use a mouthwash.


4. Storing Toothbrushes Inside The Bathroom



We have this habit of keeping our toothbrushes in the bathroom and a ratio tested had fecal residue. Or might contain gems.


5. Not Flossing

Flossing is an integral aspect of oral or dental health and one that is mostly overlooked and not probably studied.

6. Not Cleaning Tongue

use your toothbrush to scrape your tongue after brushing properly. This removes toxins and bacteria and will make sure you don' t suffer bad breath.

7. Using A Too Hard Toothbrush

Using too hard toothbrush will damage your tooth enamel, it also causes gum recession and make them bleed. Use a soft or extra- soft toothbrush, a hard toothbrush shouldn' t be an option.


8. Change Brushing Technique

Many people place their toothbrushes straight across their teeth. The ideal way is to brush in circles.


9. Over- Brushing

Brushing More than twice a day will lead to damage. Twice a day is the recommended amount. You should also wait at least 30 minutes after eating before brushing.

Thank you for the information. I found your tips very useful. I am glad that someone is concerned about people's oral hygiene because most people don't brush their teeth properly. But, unfortunately, they don't understand that this can cause serious teeth problems. As a dentist who works for perfectasmile.com, I meet people who don't care about their oral hygiene every day. I really hope that your article and my message will make them more responsible about their teeth. Take care, guys.
