What is the proper way to brush your teeth?

Here are some tips to help you brush your teeth better.

Understanding why we brush our teeth is the first step. Plaque that latches onto your teeth can cause irritation and infect your gums. The reason you brush is to get rid of the plaque.

Now you need to choose a good toothbrush. Electric toothbrushes are the best for you to use, as along with a good brushing technique, they get rid of the most plaque.

Lastly, the most important step is using the right brushing technique. Make sure to brush with fluoride toothpaste for 2 minutes, while angling the brush towards your gums.
