When you are standing over the sink brushing your pearly whites, do you ever wonder if you are doing it right? The advice for brushing the best way seems to change regularly and it can be hard to keep up. These four brushing tips will guide you towards a thorough cleaning and better brushing than you have ever had before!

What Is The Best Amount of Time To Brush?
Brushing can often be rushed as we are in a hurry to get through the mundane morning routine or lay down in bed. However, you should brush a full two minutes to ensure you have covered every corner and crevice of the teeth. Accompany that with flossing and your teeth will be the cleanest possible.

How Often Should You Brush Should You Use?
The typical recommendation is two times per day, but many people do not follow this guideline in adulthood. It is important to brush often to prevent tooth pain and dental expenses. It is best to brush morning and night. Ideally, someone who cares about their oral health would brush after each meal and after consuming something with a high acid content, such as soda.

What Kind of Brush?
Motorized toothbrushes are taking over as the optimal way to clean your teeth, and for very good reason. First, it can be easy to press too hard with a traditional toothbrush causing damage to your gums. If you are using a traditional toothbrush, you should hold it between just two fingers so that your brush is doing the cleaning work more than your grip. A motorized toothbrush does not require any pushing and usually has an indicator if you are pushing too hard on your teeth.

Second, according to dentalproductsreport.com , motorized toothbrushes give your mouth a significantly better clean. Your motorized toothbrush is better at removing plaque, reducing sensitivity, and protecting your gums than a traditional toothbrush.
How Often Should You Replace Your Toothbrush?
The typical recommendation is to replace your toothbrush or brush head every three months , but this is not always the case. You should also replace your toothbrush as soon as you see fraying or deterioration in the bristles and after an illness to prevent reinfection.

Giving your teeth a thorough clean each day is extremely important to produce your best smile and protect your overall health. Adopt these four brushing tips today and see an improvement in your teeth.
