How to brush your teeth cor­rectly

The Independent on Saturday - - HEALTH -

NEVER brush your teeth hor­i­zon­tally, warns den­tist Dr Ge­or­gios Sotiropou­los.

By do­ing so, you risk drag­ging the tooth­brush along your gum line and dam­ag­ing your teeth in the process.

In­stead, place your bris­tles at a 45-de­gree an­gle at the gum line and brush up and down with short, cir­cu­lar strokes.

An­gle the brush ver­ti­cally to clean the in­side sur­faces of your front teeth. – Mail On Sun­day
