Over the years, the way you brush your teeth may be wrong.

Brushing your teeth in the morning is decent to go out, and brushing your teeth at night stimulates sexual desire.

-< < Rhinoceros in Love > >

Brushing teeth has become a part of modern civilized life and is no longer the patent of nobles.

Brush your teeth twice a day is such a popular slogan that some dental manuals no longer advise dentists to ask patients whether to brush their teeth or how many times a day. Because even if he/she doesn’t do that, he/she knows the how said.

But do you really know how to brush your teeth? Can you brush your teeth? I guess not.

The first is the number of times you brush your teeth. Do you really accept that you should brush your teeth twice a day? Apart from dignity and sexual desire, is there any other reason to support brushing teeth?

Of course there is! This first starts with the purpose of brushing teeth.

Do you want to brush some what off your teeth?

Leftovers? Shredded meat? Leek leaves? What needs to be brushed is actually bacteria, more accurately, dental plaque.

Dental plaque is the existence form of bacteria on teeth, like a membrane, tightly adhered to teeth, and is the predecessor of tartar.

Note that dental plaque is stuck to the teeth, not like floating dust on the table top, but like oil stains on the smoke exhaust hood. It cannot be removed just by opening your mouth to let the wind blow and splashing some water on your mouth. You must brush your teeth hard.

And the bacteria in the mouth are endless, wildfire never quite consumes them, they are tall once more in the spring wind. If they are allowed to develop, in a few hours, the bacteria family will live together for four generations. In more than ten hours, they will begin to cause damage to teeth and gums, leading to tooth decay, gingivitis, halitosis, etc.

We can’t follow the old road of “pollution first and then treatment”, so we have to brush our teeth twice a day at regular intervals. Just like urban management patrols, although it is impossible to eliminate all hawkers, at least it can make the roads clean and orderly.

Should how brush his teeth?

1. Direction of bristles

The most important thing in brushing teeth is the direction of the toothbrush bristles. The toothbrush bristles are tilted 45 degrees at the junction of teeth and gums. This is the core technology of contemporary scientific brushing, whether you use a what toothbrush, it should be the same.

It’s time for friends who have inquired about the root of the problem to ask again. Why?

The purpose of brushing our teeth is to brush off dental plaque, which is easy to grow in the middle and lower third of the teeth near the gums, even in the gap between the teeth and gums.

Therefore, only when the bristles are inclined 45 degrees can plaque be effectively removed.

2. What about gingival brush bleeding?

Some people will worry, will this brush the gums? Will it bleed?

As for why gums bleed, to put it bluntly, it is because the surrounding gums are dirty. Dirty, the gums will become inflamed, and inflamed gums will easily bleed. And gums that are easy to bleed will make you afraid to brush your gums, so that the gums become dirtier and dirtier, the gums become more inflamed… thus entering a vicious circle.

Therefore, gum bleeding is not terrible, bleeding should also be brushed, and the more bleeding the place, the better brushing.

After brushing clean, the gums diminish inflammation and naturally do not bleed. Healthy gums are not afraid of brushing. Of course, if you brush like this for a week, you still bleed a lot, which means that some dirty things that cannot be removed by brushing your teeth alone stick to your teeth and you need to wash your teeth again.

3. Range of brushing teeth

The toothbrush is in the right position. How can I brush it?

The correct way is tremor, a small horizontal movement that does not exceed the width of one or two teeth, one tooth, one tooth, brushing all the way from front to back, from back to front.

Don’t open and close, because [one inch long and one inch strong], the amplitude is too large, the strength is not easy to control. Water drops and stones penetrate, and the teeth will be brushed out over time. The most common damage is to grind a row of grooves in the root of the teeth, as shown in the following figure.

4. Brush your teeth

How big should the specific force be? Advanced electric toothbrushes will have an alarm warning of excessive strength. For manual toothbrushes, the bristles should cling to the teeth, with 1/3 of the bristles tip bent under pressure and penetrating into the edges and corners around the teeth. Similar feeling:

5. Brush from the left or right first?

If you are not left-handed, try to start brushing from the right tooth, because brushing the right when holding the toothbrush in your right hand will be a bit weak and you need to pay more attention, so let’s brush first.

This is no joke. Many people have slightly more calculus on the right tooth than on the left.

6. Brush both inside and outside?

As for the inside and outside to brush, I don’t need to say this? Bacteria don’t choose where the windward water is. They grow seamlessly 360 degrees on their teeth. If you only do half of the hygiene, you are deceiving yourself and others.

7. Brush for two minutes?

Why at least two minutes?

The average person does not count wisdom teeth as 28 teeth, and each tooth has 3 surfaces that need to be brushed, which makes a total of 84 tooth surfaces, 120 seconds/84 tooth surfaces, and each surface is brushed for less than 2 seconds, which is fast enough.

In fact, for most people, two minutes may not be enough if they want to achieve a better brushing effect.

Summarize the correct brushing methods

Brush your teeth twice a day. Brush each tooth surface. The toothbrush is inclined 45 degrees and placed at the junction of your teeth and gums. Gently tremble left and right. At least two minutes at a time.
