1) Not Brushing For Long Enough
Dentists recommend two minutes each time you brush your teeth.
2) Brushing Too Hard
When you brush too hard you can damage your tooth enamel which is what protects your teeth from bacteria. Using small concentric circles is the best method to remove plaque bacteria and stains.
3) Not Giving All Teeth Equal Attention
Your best bet for healthy teeth is to spend 30 seconds on each quarter of your mouth so each tooth gets equal attention.
4) Brushing Straight After Eating
It’s best to wait 30 minutes after eating, especially if you’ve just eaten acidic foods such as fruit. which can temporarily weaken your protective enamel.
5) Forgetting To Rinse
A good rinse with clean, cold water is the best way to get rid of any particles that are left behind after flossing and brushing.
