How To Brush Your Teeth for Better Health
Brushing your teeth the proper way is important for your oral and overall health.
We all know that brushing your teeth makes them look whiter and feel cleaner, but brushing them correctly helps prevent toothaches, bleeding gums and other oral health issues which can also potentially affect your general health.
Brushing for just two minutes, twice a day, removes plaque from your teeth. If left to build up, plaque can cause bad breath, yellow teeth and ultimately lead to cavities and gingivitis or periodontitis which compromise the health of your gums and teeth. The best way to remove plaque is to combine effective toothbrushing with interdental cleaning and rinsing.
