Watch the Right Way to Brush

You probably think you know how to brush your teeth correctly. After all, how hard could it be? Glob some toothpaste on the brush, move it around a few times in your mouth, and you’re done. You’ve been doing it since you were a little kid.

Well, brushing your teeth isn’t hard, but that doesn’t mean you’re doing it in a way that promotes optimum oral health. Let Dr. Burris and his son William show you how it’s done.

Some key tips:

  • Brush two to three times a day
  • Keep the brush half on the teeth and half along the gum line
  • Massage the gums all the way around the mouth
  • Work around in the backsides of teeth, too
  • Move the tongue out of the way to get between the tongue and the back of the teeth
