Tooth brushing Mistake No.7: “Skipping Inner Tooth Surfaces”
Tooth brushing is a holistic task and is designed to ensure that teeth are thoroughly cleaned within the recommended two minutes that it takes to undertake the job well. Skipping over the front surface of your teeth, both front and rear, is not what is called a good teeth cleaning job. Places where you don’t clean, plaque and bacteria will thrive and the end result will be cavity formation and tooth decay. In the long run, this will lead to tooth loss and expensive tooth restorative treatment – and all because in your routine teeth brushing event you did not bother to clean the inner surfaces of your teeth.
Where you fail to go with your brush and floss, bacteria will thrive. If you clean your teeth for 2 minutes, twice a day, it’s not too difficult to ensure those inner surfaces are cleaned as well as the outer surfaces. Just think about the money you will save later on if you do a thorough job of teeth cleaning right now. You will be the envy of your friends when you finally retire and your smile is composed of your original teeth and not substitutes just because you took that teeth cleaning advice.
