    Mistakes to Avoid When Brushing Your Teeth

    There is a “right” method for brushing teeth. Failing to follow the proper procedure of brushing and flossing teeth lead to poor oral health.

    Key takeaways:

    • Electric brushes move water and toothpaste better and at greater speed ensuring effective removal of plaque. The brushes also help people to avoid over-brushing.
    • The toothbrush should be positioned and held at a 45-degree angle into the teeth and the gums to remove any buildup that could lead to gum disease.
    • Dentists recommend fluoride toothpastes to prevent cavities.

    You have to remove plaque in order to prevent disease, reminds Martins, adding: “Any floss is better than no floss.” So keep up with the practice, making sure your floss hugs your teeth on either side, she notes.
