Did you know that you can drastically improve your oral health care just by improving how you brush your teeth? Typically, you should be brushing your teeth twice a day, every day. However, brushing is not enough if you are not doing the job correctly. Listed below are a few tips and tricks to improve your brushing techniques.

– When selecting a toothbrush and toothpaste, look for products that feature the American Dental Associationā€™s Seal of Acceptance.
– Toothbrushes wear out easily, so be sure to replace yours every 3-4 months or sooner if required.
– The storage of a toothbrush should always be done with care. Toothbrushes that are not stored properly can become contaminated easily. Never store toothbrushes together or in closed containers for long periods of time.
– Use a toothbrush that suits your needs. If manual brushing is labored or difficult, try using an electric toothbrush instead.
– Always make sure your toothbrush head has soft bristles and can easily reach all sides of all of your teeth for a full clean.
