How to brush your teeth ?
The importance of oral health cannot be overstated. Anyone who has seen a dentist knows that once there is a problem with the teeth, filling and extraction of teeth will be very painful.
Why do various diseases occur in our oral cavity?
Most likely, you didn't do a good job of brushing your teeth.
As we all know, one of the biggest culprits in destroying oral health is dental plaque, which is the main cause of dental caries and periodontal disease. Brushing is to reduce the plaque on the teeth and protects our teeth.
Plaque is the form in which bacteria exist on the teeth. It sticks tightly to the teeth like a film and is the predecessor of calculus.
2/3 of plaque is bacteria, 1g plaque = 10 billion bacteria, and there are 500-700 types of bacteria in the oral cavity.
Note: Plaque sticks to the teeth, not the table dust, but the fume hood's oil. Just blowing or splashing some water (mouthwash) cannot be removed, it must be wiped hard (brushing). If plaque is allowed to develop, it will start to cause damage to the teeth and gums to which it is attached after a dozen hours.
Therefore, brushing your teeth is the first priority to protect oral health.
What tools are needed?
1.Toothbrush: Choose a toothbrush with soft bristles and a small head. The small toothbrush head can penetrate deep into the mouth to clean the teeth at the back, while a hard-bristled toothbrush is easy to damage the surface of the teeth and the gums.
2. Toothpaste: The fluoride ions in fluoride toothpaste can form a protective film on the tooth surface and inhibit the ability of acidic substances to erode the teeth. However, it is not recommended for children to use it to avoid irregular white plaques on the tooth surface. You can use sensitive toothpaste to brush your teeth for people with sensitive teeth.

2. Place bristles along the gumline at a 45 angle. Bristles should contact both the tooth surface and the gumline.
3. Gently brush the outer tooth surfaces of 2-3 teeth using a vibrating back, forth & rolling motion. Move brush to the next group of 2-3 teeth and repeat.
4. Maintain a 45 angle with bristles contacting the tooth surface and gumline. Gently brush using back, forth & rolling motion along all of the inner tooth surfaces.
5. Tilt brush vertically behind the front teeth. Make several up & down strokes using the front half of the brush.

Studies have shown that no more than 30% of adults can stick to the Pasteur brushing method for more than a week, and the time is even less. Electric toothbrushes are easy to use and provide timing and other functions to meet your needs. At this time, it is not unreasonable for electric toothbrushes to replace ordinary toothbrushes.
