Tooth brushing tips –
Use your toothbrush dry.
Brush every surface of all teeth at night and one other time each day. Use a pea sized blob of fluoride toothpaste with at least 1350ppm fluoride. (Children under three use a smear of toothpaste). Parents/carers need to help brush childrens teeth until they are around 8 years old and supervise often until they are much older.
Spit out after brushing but don’t rinse – let the toothpaste ingredients work their magic!
Angle the bristles around where tooth and gum meet and vibrate the bristles – you aren’t scrubbing the floor! Take your time – 2 minutes is a long time – that’s 1.5 seconds per surface per tooth. Watch what you are doing in a mirror to make sure you don’t miss anywhere.
Struggle to get to the outside of the back teeth? Close your mouth slightly and the cheek muscle relaxes allowing you to place the brush head right to the very back.
Adults with small mouths or limited opening (this can happen with aging and a variety of medical conditions), will find this brush great to gain access to all tooth surfaces.
