Have you ever wondered if there is an exact way to brush your teeth?
Well, today we are here to answer this question. To help us with that, let’s divide it into some topics:
How many times should I brush my teeth?
According to the American Dental Association, you should brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste for two minutes each time. Brushing your teeth regularly helps to remove food residuals and plaque.
What is the best toothbrush for me?
It’s important to say each individual has special needs. Still, as a general answer, normally soft-bristled toothbrushes are recommended because they do the job without damaging gums, root surfaces and protective tooth enamel. You can use medium bristled brushes, but you should be mindful of how vigorously you brush your teeth to avoid problems.
How much toothpaste should I apply?
You should use at least a pea-sized portion for adults and a smaller amount for kids 3 and under, about the size of a grain of rice.
