Back to basics: brushing your teeth properly

An effective tooth-brushing technique is the foundation of a healthy dental care routine.

Key takeaways:

- Use a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth.

- Take 2 minutes total to brush, ensuring every part of the tooth is cleaned.

- Don't brush too hard or you could damage your enamel.

- Remember to brush your tongue, floss regularly and use interdental brushes.

- Your dentist will be happy to demonstrate the most effective brushing technique and answer any questions you may have.
