You’ve Been Brushing Your Teeth All Wrong And You Didn’t Even Know

Step 1

The first step is to ensure your tooth brush is CLEAN! Try and replace your brush once every few months or so.

Watch Your Pressure

Do not apply too much pressure to avoid damaging your gums. You should hold the brush between your forefinger and thumb.

Brushing After Eating

Wait a while after you’ve eaten before brushing. If you brush too soon, you’ll wear down your enamel.

On The Flip Side

We all know the nasty taste of food mixed with toothpaste… So give it a while before you eat after brushing.

Divide It Up

Try and split it up into sections so that you don’t miss any teeth. Spend about 30 seconds on each.

Floss For Floss Sake!

Don’t forget to Floss! It’s just as important as brushing.

Go Soft

Using a tooth brush with hard bristles is a sure fire way to damage your gums and even your enamel. So go soft!
