There are actions in life that we do so much and are sure we are doing right. But the following article will make you think again about the technique of brushing your teeth.
According to the British “Sun”, it turns out that we make critical mistakes when we brush our teeth, but we are not aware of them. First, the grip of the brush is very important and most of us make a mistake in it when we hold the brush too tight in hopes of getting a better result. Make sure you hold the brush gently so as not to be too aggressive with the enamel that coats your teeth.
Now, you need to think again about the movement of your arm. If you brush your teeth as if you are rubbing to clean something – a sign that you are putting too much pressure. This can cause damage to the enamel layer of the teeth and also to receding gums. Also try to change the angle of the grip to make it sharper. If you can not avoid brushing too hard – it’s time to switch to a brush with an angled handle – which will ease the pressure on the teeth.
Now, also check your toothbrush and make sure it is not too old. If her bristles look loose and worn – it’s time to replace a brush. The older the brush, the less effective the brushing action and it is dangerous for your teeth. According to experts, a toothbrush should be replaced every four months to ensure its effectiveness.
