Toothy Tips

Dentists say that the minimum time you should spend brushing your teeth is 2 minutes twice a day. Here are some tips on how to brush properly:

  • Your toothpaste should cover the length of your brush bristle.
  • Tilt your brush to a 45-degree angle and work from the gum line to teeth, brushing with rolling, circular strokes. Be gentle - brushing too forcefully can damage enamel and gums.
  • Remember to brush the inner and outer surfaces as well as the chewing surfaces of your teeth. Brushing your tongue gently from back to front helps remove that white film (containing bacteria) that can cause bad breath. Brush Buddies toothbrushes have a built in cheek and tongue cleaner.
  • Brush Buddies allows you to play your favorite song while brushing your teeth to get used to brushing for a full 2 minutes.
  • Don’t forget to floss once a day!
  • Toothbrushes should be replaces every 3 months.
