Don’t Rush as You Brush

Tooth Brushing

Each morning, you hit the alarm clock to silence the blaring signal that means you must get out of bed. You drag yourself to your feet, stumble to the bathroom, and fumble for your toothbrush. You’re barely awake while performing one of the most important aspects of your dental care. In fact, in many cases, the habits of brushing and flossing often occur when most people are in a distracted state—running out the door to work, school, or an event, or when it’s time for bed and the last thing you want to do is worry about brushing your teeth. For these reasons, proper dental care techniques often get swept away in the rush of the moment, making friendly reminders about thorough brushing and routine flossing essential to optimizing your dental health.

The following tips are recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA) to improve your dental care routine and oral health:

  • The order of your dental care. You can floss before you brush or brush before you floss.
  • Proper quadrant technique. Divide your mouth in quadrants and brush each area for 30 seconds, cleaning the outside, inside, and bottom of the teeth in each quadrant. Angle your toothbrush slightly and brush your teeth with gentle short back-and-forth motions. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, as well.
  • Brush at least twice daily. Brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time. Try to brush after every meal to minimize the bacteria and acid that contribute to tooth decay.
  • Floss daily. There are places your toothbrush can’t reach, which makes flossing an essential part of a healthy dental care routine.
  • Rinse with mouthwash after brushing. Use a mouthwash to wash away bacteria and germs that might remain in the mouth after brushing and flossing.
  • Select your toothpaste. There are many toothpaste choices, so choose one that is approved by the ADA.
  • Choose the correct toothbrush. Many family dentistry experts recommend electric or battery-operated toothbrushes, which reduce plaque and gingivitis better than manual brushing. Use a toothbrush that fits comfortably in your mouth and has soft bristles.
  • Clean your dental care equipment. Rinse your toothbrush thoroughly with water after each brushing and store in an upright position. Allow the toothbrush to air-dry when possible before your next use. Avoid covering or storing your toothbrush in a closed container, which can breed bacteria.
  • Replace your toothbrush regularly. Whether you use a manual or electric toothbrush, it should be replaced every three months or when the bristles become worn—whichever comes first.
  • Visit an affordable dentist. Schedule routine visits to a family dentistry practice in Frederick every six months.
