Brushing and Flossing

Brushing

 

• Use a soft toothbrush and place the head of your toothbrush next to your teeth with the bristle tips angled against the gum line at a 45° angle.

• Move the brush downwards to clean the upper jaw and upwards to clean the lower jaw, several times, using gentle “scrubbing motion.”

• Brush the outer surfaces of each tooth, upper and lower, and also the palatal and lingual surfaces.

• Scrub the chewing surfaces of all teeth, upper and lower. Do not press hard: let the bristles get in to the grooves of your teeth.

To brush properly spend at least 2 minutes brushing your teeth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flossing

 

• Taking about 20 inches of floss, wind both ends around your middle fingers. Leave a short distance of floss between your fingers.

• Insert the floss carefully between the teeth. Clean below the gum still in contact with the tooth each side by pulling the floss gently up and down and bucco-lingual. Be careful not to damage the gums by flossing too vigorously.

• Repeat the flossing action for each tooth, winding on a fresh piece of floss for each space. After flossing, rinse your mouth.

Flossing needs little practice, but you will soon get to use it properly.
