It has been said that if you brushed your teeth after consuming any food or drink, you are far less likely to decay. While this is true, it is vital that you are brushing your teeth correctly. We show all of our patients the correct method for tooth brushing, so they get the best results from their efforts.
The toothbrush should be at a 45-degree angle to the teeth. For best results, brush for two minutes each time, and ensure you brush your tongue as well to eradicate more of the bacteria that causes tooth decay.
