BRUSHING PROPERLY

•Floss first

•Always use a soft brush.  Medium and hard bristles can contribute to abrasion.

•Do not use large-headed brushes.  They are not as maneuverable.

•Choose a brush that tapers a bit at the tip

•Don't go fancy with bizarre bristle styles

•Use a "regular" toothpaste.  Not whitening.  Not gel.  Not tartar control.  They are all abrasive.

•Do not use baking soda out of the box or salt

•Use an amount of toothpaste about the size of a pea or two

•Don't swallow the toothpaste

•Angle the bristles 45 degrees into your gumline

•Scrub back and forth or make small circles, along the gumline

•If using a mechanical brush, let the brush do the work.  Don't press hard.  Always buy the small toothbrush heads.

•The purpose is to brush the crevice between your teeth and gums

•Brush only two or three teeth at a time

•The further back you brush, the more your mouth should be closed to allow freedom of movement

•Make sure that your tongue doesn't push the bristles away from your gums when brushing the insides

•Often the toothbrush must be stood on end to effectively brush the inside of the front teeth

•Then scrub the biting surfaces of the teeth

•It's OK to then go back and "free style" again all over the teeth

•Brush your tongue and your palate

•Rinse thoroughly

•Change your brush every 2-3 months

Healthy smile, healthy you: The importance of oral health

<Gum disease and health complications>

According to the Academy of General Dentistry, there is a relationship between gum (periodontal) disease and health complications such as a stroke and heart disease. Women with gum disease also show higher incidences of pre-term, low birth-weight babies.
Other research shows that more than 90 percent of all systemic diseases (diseases involving many organs or the whole body) have oral manifestations, including swollen gums, mouth ulcers, dry mouth and excessive gum problems. Such diseases include:

•Diabetes •Leukemia •Oral cancer •Pancreatic cancer •Heart disease
•Kidney disease

Since most people have regular oral examinations, their dentist may be the first health care provider to diagnose a health problem in its early stages.

<What you can do>

Seeing a dentist regularly helps to keep your mouth in top shape and allows your dentist to watch for developments that may point to other health issues. A dental exam can also detect poor nutrition and hygiene, growth and development problems and improper jaw alignment. Provide your dentist with a complete medical history and inform him or her of any recent health developments, even if they seem unrelated to your oral health.
At home, you can practice good oral hygiene:

•Brush for two to three minutes, at least twice a day, with fluoridated toothpaste.

•Floss daily to remove plaque from places your toothbrush can't reach.

•Eat a healthy diet to provide the nutrients necessary (vitamins A and C, in particular) to prevent gum disease.

•Avoid cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, which may contribute to gum disease and oral cancer.

•Exercise preventive care and schedule regular dental checkups — the surest way to detect early signs of periodontal disease.
