Brush your teeth and wash your hands before eating — the first thing that parents teach us. Therefore, we think that we are able to do both well. It turns out that this is not the case.
To learn how to properly wield dental brush, says K. Mr.., a doctor of the highest category Olga Prokusheva.
So, first of all, remember the main rule of proper brushing of teeth: horizontal brush strokes along dentition banned! So you do not clean off dental plaque from the enamel, and drive it into the interdental spaces, and get him out of there very, very difficult. By the way, this is how often and tooth decay begins — because the bacteria that cause it are living in clover between the teeth, never touched hygiene products.
Now, how to brush. We begin with the lower jaw with the inner surface of the teeth. Put the brush to the marginal teeth and turn the bristles so that it is vertical move along teeth (see photo), the brush itself to move from side to side is not necessary. Therefore clean the inside surface upper and lower teeth.
The front teeth (upper and lower) are also cleared by vertical movements, but for the convenience of the brush can be placed perpendicular to the dental row. The main thing — do not "sawing" brush your teeth up and down too hard, do better ejector movements only upwards.
External surface Tooth purified as internal — gradually move the brush over dentition by rotating only its head. Normal bristle dental tooth brush covers 3-4, to clear each such parcel, you will need about 10 vertical movements.
After you have cleaned your teeth from the inside and the outside, you can begin to clean up the chewing surface. Here is the famous suit of movement along. Just do not get carried away — on the strength of the brush pressure on the success of the enterprise does not.
You can complete the cleaning brush in a circular motion on the outer surface of the teeth. For this somknite tight jaw and move brush along the tooth row. After some training the whole procedure should take you about 1.5 minutes, but first have to spend on dental care up to 3 minutes.
