Yes, there is a right and wrong way to brush your teeth. Surprise! We bet you didn’t know that. There’s a lot more to the process than simply smothering toothpaste on your brush and brushing your teeth. There are angles and movements involved. Your teeth are shaped in such a way that a brush must be used on the front, sides, and back of your teeth. You would be surprised just how many patients are unsure of the proper way to brush their teeth. Also, many patients forgo flossing. It’s just as important as brushing your teeth and can help keep tooth decay, plaque and tartar off of your tooth’s surface.
At our office in Ft. Collins, CO, we go out of our way to help our patients understand how important it is to practice good dental hygiene habits at home. These habits include brushing and flossing correctly. Dr. Lindsey is the dentist Ft. Collins, CO residents can trust. She wants your smile to look and feel as clean as possible, and learning how to properly brush your teeth will help achieve those results. Pick up your toothbrush, get somewhere where there’s a mirror, and start practicing.
