How to brush your teeth is right? After watching this rising posture!

1. The toothpaste can be stained with water before brushing

It is rumoured that if the toothpaste is water, there will be a lot of bubbles, which will lead people to think that it has been brushing for a long time to finish brushing their teeth ahead of time. In fact, brushing is a boring and repetitive activity. No matter whether it's wet or not, people will feel that time goes faster when they brush their teeth.

After water, the foam is more abundant, which helps to clean the teeth. Water is needed for the dissolution and foaming of toothpaste in the mouth. Although there is saliva in the mouth, for sensitive friends, toothpaste absorbs too much water from the oral mucosa, which may cause discomfort or even peeling.

Note: the effective ingredients of some desensitization and whitening toothpastes will decompose rapidly when exposed to water, and should not be stained with water before brushing.

2. Brush your teeth for at least two minutes

Note: feeling alone is not reliable. If there is no electric toothbrush for timing, it is better to use the clock as the timing reference.

3. Keep the bristles at an angle of 45 degrees

Plaque tends to grow in the middle and lower 1 / 3 of the teeth near the gum, even the gap between the teeth and the gum.

The most effective way to remove dental plaque is to place the bristles at the junction of teeth and gums at a 45 degree angle.

4. The brushing range should not be too large

The right way is to have a small horizontal tremor, no more than the width of one or two teeth.

Should a tooth, a tooth, from the front to the back, from the back to the front to brush teeth, do not around the front and back 'big saw'. Large range, easy to damage teeth, a long time will be in the root of the teeth out of a row of grooves.

5. Brush your teeth from the right first

Many people have slightly more calculus on their right teeth than on their left. Because when holding the toothbrush in the right hand, it will be more difficult to brush the right side, so it is better to brush the right side first.

If it's left-handed, of course, start from the left.

6. Brush gum bleeding carefully

Gingival bleeding indicates inflammation of the teeth. The more afraid of bleeding, the less you brush your teeth properly, the more serious the inflammation is & hellip; hellip; the more bleeding you brush. After brush clean, gum antiphlogistic nature did not bleed.

Note: if you brush your teeth seriously for a week or bleeding, you may need further treatment. Brushing alone cannot solve the problem.

7. Choose fluoride toothpaste

Fluoride toothpaste can effectively prevent caries. Brushing with fluoride toothpaste alone will not cause excessive fluoride intake.

According to the latest guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics, fluoride toothpaste should be used whenever a baby starts to have his first tooth.

8. Pay attention to the dosage of toothpaste

Adults use about 1cm of toothpaste according to their oral size. When children under 6 brush their teeth, adults should urge them to spit.

Under 3 years old: use rice size toothpaste

3-6 years old: pea size toothpaste

9. Brush your tongue after brushing your teeth

Some of the tongue coating will lead to tooth decay, periodontitis, and other bacterial metabolites will also cause breath. After brushing, spit out the tongue. Brush the tongue gently with the rubber area on the back of the toothbrush or the special tongue scraper, and repeat several times. It's better not to brush the tongue directly with the bristles. It's easy to get hurt.

Try to scrape to the root of the tongue, but you may feel vomiting. Practice slowly.
