Often patients of all ages are unsure of how to brush properly. It is a common question we get asked and one that we try to education our patients on. The key to brushing properly is with proper technique combined with a fluoridated tooth paste. We recommend brushing and flossing in the morning and at night time. Both a manual tooth brush and an electric tooth brush can do an equally effective job provided the proper technique is used.
The Australian Dental Association has produced an excellent video demonstrating this. Please take some time to watch this very helpful video. And don’t forget to book your 6 monthly dental check at the dentist!
