Replace Your Toothbrush
Although it’s said that old is gold, but this is not valid in the case of your toothbrush! Hence you must change your toothbrush every three to four months. Bristles that are frayed and broken will not clean your teeth effectively. And if you have fallen sick, you should replace your toothbrush after you recover.
Brush Twice A Day
We all love speed, but when it comes to brushing your teeth, you need to brush for atleast two minutes twice a day, every day. This will help keep your teeth healthy.
Be Gentle To Your Mouth
You might be someone who spends four hours a day in the gym but try being gentle on your teeth. To remove all the food particles and bacteria from your mouth, all you need is to make sure you brush your teeth gently.
When Is The Right Time To Brush
You should wait for least sixty minutes after eating or drinking acidic stuff foodstuff. I.e., soda, lemons, grapefruit juice, etc. Brushing before time can damage your teeth’ enamel.
Keep Your Brush Properly
Make sure you properly store your brush after using it. It should be kept upright and in the open air. This will keep it dry and not let bacteria grow on it.
Make Sure You Are Using A Soft Toothbrush
If you use a toothbrush with hard bristles on it, it can damage your gums and teeth over time.
