Brushing your teeth is something we all do twice a day and most people know the golden rules: change your brush regularly and don’t forget to floss. And, we have to stick to them and brush correctly.
According to Dr Arhiri, a leading cosmetic dentist, the chances are that you are not. Plenty of people don’t know how to brush their teeth correctly , which can often lead to plaque build-up and tooth and gum decay.
One of the common mistakes is brushing too hard which might damage your gums and erode the enamel of the tooth. Brushing teeth too quickly is also a bad habit that a lot of people tend to get into. We should all be brushing our teeth for at least two minutes, twice a day.
Remembering to renew your toothbrush In another key factor and many of us fail to do. Ideally you should change it every three months because a worn toothbrush is less effective at removing plaque.
And get comfortable with flossing which is vital as bacteria can hide in gasps between your teeth and multiply.
Choosing a cosmetic dentist is challenging! Make sure they show you a lot of before and after cases ( at Premier Smiles, we always show over 30 cases completed in order to give our patients a sense of what they might look like).
