Tooth brushing Mistake No.6

“Starting in the Same Place Each Time”

Most mature individuals have 32 teeth in their mouth. Each of those teeth need to be cleaned in such a way that all plaque is eliminated from the surfaces of the tooth’s enamel. Despite the need for such intricate cleansing methods, some people still make simple tooth brushing mistakes. Such tooth brushing mistakes can have an ill effect on the overall health of a persons’ mouth. The following is some information on a frequent mistake that people make, which is starting in the same place every time:

The Importance of Even Distribution

Even distribution is essential when a person is performing dental hygiene activities. Starting at the same place during each tooth brushing session will keep the fluoride distribution focused on only one area of the mouth. To ensure that all teeth receive an equal amount of toothpaste distribution, the person will want to start in a different spot each time. He or she may want to separate the teeth into quadrants and start from a different quadrant each day.

Brushing With Braces

You may need a special tool to keep the teeth clean while wearing braces. An orthodontic office will recommend the appropriate tool for a client who has just received braces. Even brushing distribution is important even when a patient wears braces. Invisalign patients can easily adjust their teeth brushing habits because they can remove the aligners at any time.
