After many years of brushing you’ve got the perfect technique to give your mouth the optimal clean feeling. Brushing your teeth the right way is important to your oral health.

Brush up on your skills to make sure you’re not making any of these common mistakes.

Brushing too hard

Your teeth are not as hard as they may lead. Brushing aggressively can cause wear away at the enamel on your teeth. It may also lead the gum tissue to come away from your teeth. This leads to receding gums and can also lead to tooth sensitivity. Use a soft bristled brush and move in small circular patterns or in vertical strokes to clean your teeth best.

Not brushing long enough

In order to thoroughly brush your teeth, the minimum amount of time you should be brushing is two minutes. Not brushing for long enough is the most frequently made mistake. Give your teeth the clean they deserve.

Forgetting the corners

This is another common mistake that people do while brushing. Forgetting or leaving out parts of your mouth. Spots like the inside of your teeth don’t get as much love as the sides. Some areas that are skipped out of habit or because you may not be paying enough attention. Target the outside and chewing surfaces of your teeth. Then your gums, roof of mouth and tongue.

Overdoing toothpaste

Using too much paste wont harm your teeth, but it may affect your brushing. If you don’t like the feeling of a mouth full of foam, it means you wont brush for long enough. You only need enough toothpaste to cover the length of your toothbrush, more does not lead to a cleaner teeth.
