How To Brush Your Teeth The Right Way
It may seem like a simple and easy task you’ve (hopefully!) been doing twice a day everyday for most of your life, but you could actually be doing brushing your teeth all wrong.
You should always wait at least 30 minutes after eating before brushing your teeth. This is because acids from fruit and juices can wear down the enamel if you brush straight away. Flossing once a day is ideal too, try and do this before brushing your teeth as this reaches places your toothbrush and paste can’t! If you wish to use mouthwash, ideally rinse before brushing your teeth too.
Next up, choose the right tools for brushing your teeth. An electric toothbrush is generally recommended by dentists as many change speed and pressure depending on which area you’re brushing, and they’re proven to remove more plaque each time than a manual brush. Whether your teeth are sensitive or stained from drinking too much coffee and tea, choose a toothpaste that suits your needs. The Janina Ultra White range has plenty of choice, we would recommend the Maxiwhite Super Strength for whiter teeth or the Activated Charcoal Toothpaste to release extra freshness and absorb toxins from your breath.
Time for brushing your teeth! Now we say you should ideally brush for 3 minutes, this is to allow the toothpaste to work and whiten your teeth. Afterwards, spit but do not rinse!! The removes the protective layer of fluoride from the top layer of your teeth which helps to protect against enamel erosion. The special Bromaine Complex will also work to whiten your teeth after brushing, so it’s vital you do not rinse afterwards.
