Oh, yeah! You heard it right. But that's okay, because you are not alone. Before I did my research, even I was doing the same. Well, It would be so injustice with your health if I didn't tell you about it. So here you go, let me reveal the secret of brushing your teeth in the perfect way and increasing their life by a huge margin.
The cheapness or cost doesn't define the quality of a brush, always select ADA-approved brush which are perfectly fresh. Keep changing brush within months.
You should use your forefinger and thumb to hold the brush. Don't use the rest of hand as it may put much pressure than required.
This may lead down to your enamel on your teeth.
Never eat anything, immediately after brushing.
Divide the whole mouth into four parts and give 30 seconds to each part.
Flossing is as important as is brushing, so bring it in regular habit. Mouth- wash is good for breath smell but not important for health.
As hard brushes can destroy enamel and gums, so use soft bristles.
After brushing, you should keep the brush covered otherwise new bacteria could be introduced to your mouth.
