Daily routines like brushing and cleaning the teeth need to be carefully and properly made, in order to maintain healthy teeth. There are specific techniques related to the teeth brush, and our dentists in Dubai can provide you with information and guidance on this matter. Before we explain the proper procedure to brush your teeth correctly, we remind that you can receive dental implants in Dubai. Every patient can obtain personalized dental treatments in our modern dental clinics in Dubai.

Important aspects to consider when you brush the teeth

Most people use the toothbrush with back and forth motions, in a hard and a fast manner, until they get the sensation of cleaned and slippery teeth. This sawing motion is quite abrasive and will only damage the teeth enamel and the gums. Our Dubai dentist recommends a proper and an easier technique that implies the following aspects:

•    place the toothbrush over the teeth and then wiggle it back and forth and make sure the bristles cover each tooth and clean around the sides;
•    allow and direct the bristles to clean the spaces between the teeth, in order to remove the food particles;
•    repeat the process with the next set of teeth;
•    clean the inner surfaces of the upper teeth and then of the lower ones;
•    clean the chewing surfaces;
•    clean and wash the tongue.

It is good to know that the brush needs to be tilted at 45 degrees angle against the gums. A proper brushing will take about two minutes and it is recommended to take extra care if you are having dental implants or fillings.

Everybody needs to brush the teeth correctly

The brushing technique is extremely important because this way you can maintain a good dental health and you can avoid plaque, gingivitis or other severe problems. Our dentist in Dubai recommends to every patient the importance of a proper toothbrush and toothpaste for the daily teeth cleaning. A soft-bristle brush can properly remove debris and can clean the hard-to-reach back teeth. For a better cleaning of your teeth, you can also use an electric toothbrush, if you want long-term results, fresh breath, and deep washing. And besides that, you will definitely improve the oral hygiene.
