How should I brush my teeth?
It is important to get into routine when brushing your teeth. Here are some brushing techniques you could use at home:
Place the head of the toothbrush against your gum line at a 45-degree angle
Move the brush in small circular motions, brushing 2-3 teeth at a time
Brush the outer surface of the teeth and gums, upper and lower
Brush the inner surface of the teeth, to clean the front inner teeth, tilt the brush vertically. Use gentle up and down strokes with the head of the toothbrush
Brush the biting surfaces of your teeth
Lastly make sure to brush your tongue too! As it can have bacteria build up that may cause bad breath.
