How to Brush Your Teeth?

Most of Us are Sleepy Heads while brushing our teeth. Am I Right or Am I Right? 😉

But Yeah the reason why Most of us face dental issues is because of not brushing the teeth right way.

Though it’s  a Manual or Electric toothbrush, the correct technique would always work and get results.

Start it Right First thing, I would say is Divide your Mouth into Quadrants, i.e. Left Upper, Right Upper , Left Lower and Right Lower and try to brush approximately 30 seconds in each quadrant.

Hold the toothbrush at the proper angle. The biggest mistake most people make is holding their toothbrush at 90 degrees, which cleans the teeth but not the gums. Bacteria grows in the space between the teeth and gums, and in order to disrupt it, you need to use the bristles at a 45-degree angle and get them below the gum line. So, Try to Place the bristles in an angle almost 45-degree that contacts both Teeth and Gums.

Brush two-three teeth at a time. Work your way methodically around your mouth, focusing your attention on two-three teeth at a time. “If you’re using a powered/electric brush, just set it on those two-three teeth and let it do its thing, then move on to the next two-three”

Be thorough. “Regardless of what type of brush you use, you still have to make sure the bristles touch every surface of every tooth”. Clean the front and back sides of all your teeth, top and bottom, including the sharp edges. You also need to get the toothbrush behind your back teeth. For good measure, use your toothbrush to go over the surface of your tongue, to reduce bacteria and prevent bad breath. Also Our Sonic Toothbrush has got an inbuilt Tongue Scraper to Clean the tongue.

Use the right touch. “There’s a fine line between doing a good job and overdoing it”. If you’re concerned that you’re brushing too hard, try this trick: Instead of grasping the toothbrush in your fist, hold it with just your fingertips. “It doesn’t allow you to put as much pressure on your gums” .

And know the signs of overly aggressive brushing: tooth sensitivity, bleeding or irritated gums, receding gums, and splayed toothbrush bristles.

Replace your toothbrush regularly. You’ll need to break out a new toothbrush—or a new brush head for an electric toothbrush—every three to four months. If you notice the bristles are frayed or splaying open, it’s definitely time for a new one. “Splayed bristles can no longer effectively get under the gum line”

Lastly, consider this: Plastic toothbrushes create a lot of trash—Most of the type that doesn’t break down easily. With electric models, you’re typically tossing a little less plastic because it’s only the brush head that’s replaced regularly. However, some manufacturers now offer manual toothbrushes with replaceable heads. And some companies make manual toothbrushes from sustainable bamboo, compostable bio-plastic, or cellulose  .

We, at O’Range came with solution for both ,our Electric brush uses 7% less plastic than others and we have a wide range of sustainable oral products like bamboo toothbrushes, wheatstraw toothbrush , toothpaste tablets and many more yet to come… Stay Tuned and Connected to know more about our upcoming products.
