BRUSHING

Correct brushing technique is also vital. A lot of people brush their teeth too hard, and this damages the calcium surrounding the teeth.

The calcium is what makes your teeth look white so you need to do all you can to look after it. That is why you should use a soft toothbrush and gently let the bristle do the work instead of brushing vigorously.

You should brush the front of your teeth from side to side first and then in a circular motion for a short amount of time. If you follow this advice you will definitely see and improvement in the whiteness of your teeth in the span of a couple of months.

Firstly it is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day and preferably three times. This keeps your teeth clean of plaque and bacteria that can cause staining and/or decay.

It is a good idea to leave brushing your teeth 20 minutes after you have eaten a meal as your teeth are softer after eating, and will therefore damage more easily if you brush immediately after. After brushing you should then floss and rinse your mouth out with mouthwash to get rid of the bacteria in places that brushing can’t reach.

Toothbrush

The toothbrush is an instrument used to clean teeth, consisting of a small brush  on a handle.

Toothbrushes are offered with varying textures of bristle , and come in many different sizes and forms. Most dentists recommend using a toothbrush labeled “Soft”, since firmer bristled toothbrushes can damage tooth enamel  and irritate gums as indicated by the American Dental Association

Toothbrushes are often made from synthetic fibers, although natural toothbrushes are also known in many parts of the world.

Toothpaste

Modern toothpaste gel

Toothpaste is a paste or gel used to clean and improve the aesthetic appearance and health of teeth .

It is almost always used in conjunction with a toothbrush.

Toothpaste use can promote good oral hygiene: it can aid in the removal of dental plaque and food from the teeth, it can aid in the elimination and/or masking of bad breath, and it can deliver active ingredients such as fluoride to prevent tooth and gums disease.

Tooth powder

Tooth powder (or ‘toothpaste powder’) is an alternative to toothpaste.

It may be recommended for people with sensitive teeth.

Tooth powder typically does not contain the chemical sodium lauryl sulphate which can be a skin irritant. The function of sodium lauryl sulphate is to form suds when teeth are brushed. It is a common chemical in toothpaste
