Ok, so how does it go? Is it up and down or side to side? Wait, I hear small circles is the way to go! Oh and don’t forget to scrub that tongue too!
You have probably hear a few magic brushing techniques over the years, but what is actually correct?
According to Health 24, many people don’t know how to brush their teeth properly.
Improper brushing can cause as much damage to the teeth and gums as not brushing at all. Lots of people don’t brush for long enough, don’t floss and don’t see a dentist regularly.
Hold your toothbrush in the same way that would hold a pencil, and brush for at least two minutes.
