Improved bass brushing technique:
Hold the head of the toothbrush horizontally on the tooth, with bristles on the gums
Tilt the brush head about 45 degrees to point the bristles under the gum line.
Move the toothbrush very short in the horizontal direction to keep the tip of the bristles in one position, but the brush head swings back and forth. Or use a tiny circular movement. This allows the bristles to slide slightly under the gums. Do about 20 times. This ensures that enough time is spent on cleaning plaque as much as possible. Note: This is a very modest motion. In healthy gums, this should not cause pain. Excessive or heavy impact can damage gingival tissue.
Scroll or flick the brush to remove the bristles from under the gum to the occlusal edge of the tooth. This helps to remove plaque from under the gum line.
Repeat for each tooth to clean all tooth surfaces and gum line.
For the inside of your incisors, horizontal brush position is too much trouble, please hold the brush vertically. Again, brush your teeth back and forth gently and finish with a roll or brush toward the undercut.
To clean the occlusal or chewing surface of the tooth, hold the toothbrush so that the bristles are straight down on the flat surface of the molar.
Gently move the brush backwards or small circle to clean the entire surface. Move to a new tooth or area until all the teeth are clean.
Rinse food residue with clean water and remove plaque.
Brushing your teeth can clear more bacteria in your mouth. Use your toothbrush to brush firmly and gently from the back to the front. Do not go too far in your mouth, so your nagging. Flush again.
Many people never learn to floss as children do. However, the use of dental floss is essential for the health of the gums, and it is not too late. A common rule of thumb is that any difficult new habit will become second in three weeks. If you have a hard time figuring out what to do, ask your dentist or dental hygienist to give you a private lesson.
Here are some general indicators about flossing:
Floss Once a day – While no study has recommended the optimal floss count, most dentists recommend thorough floss cleaning at least once daily. If you tend to trap food between your teeth, more flossing can help clear it up.
Putting your time – flossing requires some flexibility and thought. Do not rush
Choose Your Time – While most people find it an ideal time to go to bed, many oral health professionals recommend the most convenient floss to ensure that you can continue to floss. Choose a floss that can be used without hurry during the day.
Do not mean to floss – clean as many sides of each tooth as you can with fresh floss. In fact, you may need to use one tooth multiple times (using fresh floss) to remove any food debris. Although not studied, some professionals believe that re-flossing parts may redistribute bacteria removed from one tooth to another tooth.
Choose the type that suits you best – There are many different types of dental floss: waxed and unwaxed, flavored and tasteless, banded and linear. Try different breeds before you place one. People with close teeth will find that wax teeth slide more easily into tight spaces. There are tougher tear varieties that fit those rough edges and tend to grab and tear floss.
How to use floss
How you hold the floss is a matter of personal preference. The most common method is to floss around the middle finger, and then tighten, with the index finger to guide. You can also wrap it with your index finger, with your thumb and middle finger, or simply hold both ends of the dental floss or use floss guide tools. (If you have a fixed bridge, a bridgeman can help guide the floss under the bridge for better cleaning.) How you hold the wire is not as important as what you do. If you can not solve the problem in a good way, ask your dentist or hygienist for advice.
