Tips for Telling if You Miss Spots When Brushing

Posted on 8/23/2021 by Dr. J. Derek Tieken
Tips for Telling if You Miss Spots When BrushingIf you routinely rush through your brushing, and you are wondering if you have been consistently missing spots in your mouth, we have some tips for you to tell if you are doing an adequate job.

Look for These Warning Signs if You Think You Are Not Brushing Well

It is important to brush your teeth well. Tooth decay is the top dental issue around the globe. You can avoid that with good oral hygiene measures. It can be hard to know how you are doing. If you want to be able to tell how you are doing on your brushing routine, follow these tips for brushing success.

Our first tip is to rub your tongue against the back of your front teeth. Do you feel a fuzzy texture? If so, this could be an indicator that you are not maneuvering your toothbrush well behind your front teeth. Tartar can easily build up here if you are consistently missing these places.

Our second tip is to assess your breath. If you do not regularly clean your tongue, bacteria and food particles can get trapped in the grooves of your tongue and start to stink. Brush your tongue with gentle pressure to remove bacteria and food.

Our last tip is to make your next appointment for a dental cleaning and exam. Behind your teeth and around your molars are difficult places to keep clean. A professional cleaning every six months will help to ensure those places are clean and that you are not missing any spots.

Make Sure to Schedule Your Routine Dental Exams

Give our friendly office staff a call to schedule your next dental exam. We look forward to assessing your total oral hygiene. We want to help you keep your mouth clean and healthy.
