How to Keep Teeth & Gums Healthy: Brushing Your Teeth Correctly: Dental Care & Oral Hygiene

Last updated 7 years ago

You may brush your teeth twice a day, but how do you know if you’re brushing them correctly?

In this video, you will learn how to maintain good oral hygiene with proper brushing and flossing. Start by brushing your back molars, holding the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gum line—this is where most plaque and bacteria builds up. It’s also crucial to brush in small circles rather than back and forth to avoid cutting your gums. How long should you brush? Find out in this full clip!
