The #1 Worst Way To Brush Your Teeth!

Brush The Right Way Today!

 

Everyone knows the importance of brushing your teeth twice a day, but not many people realize that the very way you brush your teeth can be just as important as the amount of times you brush.

In fact, what if I told you that the way many people have always brushed their teeth is actually CAUSING them oral problems?

Well, it's true that poor dental form has helped cause more than a quarter of all adults between the ages of 20 and 44, and 13.2% of children between the ages of 5 and 19 to have untreated dental caries. (1) (2)

In this oral care blog we talk about the absolute worst way you can brush your teeth, then discuss the ways you can achieve GREATER ORAL HEALTH today!

 

THE WORST WAY

 

One of the most important things to know about brushing your teeth is that all the time in the world won't fix poor technique. And one of the worst ways you can spend your time while brushing is by not brushing your whole tooth.

Being sure you're taking the time to brush your entire tooth is essential in achieving optimal oral health, as missing even a small area of your tooth can lead to gum disease and cavities around the area you missed. (3)

The reason so many people miss these important areas of their teeth while brushing is because they may not actually be watching themselves brush, even when in front of the mirror! So, the next time you brush, pay close attention to how you brush, and ensure you're taking the time to brush all your teeth completely each time. (4)

 

FUN FACT: When brushing, be gentle on your teeth, which will also protect your gums. Protect your mouth completely and GO ALL-NATURAL with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO, and enjoy greater oral health today! (5)

 

Though it's not foolproof, brushing your teeth for two minutes at least twice a day should be a sufficient-enough time for brushing. The only problem, though, is when you spend this time brushing side to side, instead of massaging.

 

Be sure you're massaging your whole tooth when brushing your teeth, including those easy-to-miss spots.

 

Brushing along your teeth and scrubbing is a major brushing mistake. Instead, it's recommended that you massage your teeth, starting from the gum and then brushing up and down. (6)

Not brushing your teeth in this way can lead to the buildup of sticky plaque, which is a combination of food particles and the acid resulting from an accumulation of bacteria. And remember: there's no time to waste. This layering on on your teeth forms right after you eat! (7)

WHEN TO BRUSH

 

Just as important as your brushing method is when you practice this method. And many people don't realize that brushing your teeth right after you eat may not be the best thing for your oral health.

This is because the sugar in sugary foods and starches allow bacteria to produce acid, which in turn causes your teeth to lose minerals and for your enamel to weaken. Brushing when under this chaotic state may lead to further tooth damage. (8)

And this damage is significant, as tooth enamel is the hardest substance in your body. However, this substance is known to wear away as a result of overaggressive brushing, so it's important to always protect your enamel, as it cannot recover once heavily damaged. (9)

 

FUN FACT: People with periodontitis and gingivitis are recommended to brush their teeth using different methods. Prevent gum disease from the start by using GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO today! (10)

 

Now that you know the worst way and worst time to brush, it's time to talk about the tool you use while brushing. Your toothbrush, for example, has a lot to say in how effective your brushing technique is, and needs to be considered thoroughly each time you brush.

 

Using soft-bristled toothbrushes protects your teeth from the wear and tear of brushing.

 

Hard-bristled and some medium-bristled toothbrushes can cause damage to your enamel, so dentists recommend that you use a soft-bristled toothbrush, which will prevent the wear and tear of your gums and teeth. (11)

It's also important that you choose the right ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE products when brushing your teeth. This is because fluoride is toxic at certain levels, and can actually cause cellular health problems such as altered neurodevelopment and inflammation. (12)

Can a paste be made using the Kid’s Tooth Powder and Mouthwash? I wanted to try pre-mixing them for my daughter but want to be sure it’s just as effective. Thanks!

Hey Stacey! Thanks so much for your question! It’s always better to use the product as is. Making it in paste form will necessitate the use of other chemicals, which we don’t want you to experience.
