teeth, health, smile, dentistMillions of people suffer from dental diseases due to poor brushing routines. Brushing your teeth properly is the first step to reducing visits to the dentists and preventing tooth loss.

Key takeaways:

– Brush daily, in the morning and before bedtime, using an electric toothbrush and toothpaste with 1400PPM fluoride.

– Quit rinsing your mouth after brushing as it washes the fluoride away, thus exposing you to cavities.

– Remember to brush your cheek lining and tongue.

– Use an interdental brush to clean in-between teeth.

See your dentist for regular checkups and professional cleaning.
