Most of us were taught to brush in a circular motion over the teeth surfaces using a fluoride based toothpaste. Dr. Urban has a different method she teaches her patients, as she demonstrates in the video.
Three tips for this technique:
- Using a dry, soft bristled toothbrush, the dry brush helps get the bristles between the teeth and gums better.
- Start on upper right,making sure you touch every tooth.
- Use the brush to poke and jiggle in between teeth (almost like toothpick)
This technique allows to reach the bacteria under the gum tissue and can help prevent gum disease.
