How to brush my teeth and gums?

How to brush your teeth
  • Brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day with an electric toothbrush or a soft to medium brush (replace the brush when the bristles get out of shape).
  • Make sure the toothpaste you are using is a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Put the bristles at the join between the gums, using short circular movements.
  • While brushing make sure you cover all surfaces of the teeth.
  • Try not to use too much force as this can damage your gums causing sensitivity.
  • When brushing your teeth, it’s also important to clean the tongue too.

Brushing Flossing

Brushing your teeth does cover most of your mouth and tooth surface. However, a toothbrush doesn’t fit in between your teeth. This is why it is very important to floss daily.

How should I floss?

  • Use about 18 inches of floss. Wrap the ends around the middle fingers of each hand, leaving two to three inches between the first finger and thumb.
  • Gently slide the floss between two teeth and put it round one tooth, next to the gum, using your fingers.
  • Move the floss up and down the side of the tooth several times.
  • If however you can’t get on with flossing, alternatively Interdental brushes are also good.

"I brought myself to Dr Sawhney after a bad experience elsewhere involving the removal of a conspicuous tooth resulting in practical concerns and a loss of confidence. I was reassured by the quality of care and advice I received and was able to decide upon a dental implant with full knowledge of the costs and process, including the timescale of six months."

“Dr. Sawhney has been excellent at recommending the correct treatments and ensuring I have had the best service possible. I would recommend Riverside Dental to everyone, especially nervous patients, as the staff could not make you feel more relaxed. I am now more confident in my appearance, which makes a hugh difference!”

- Harry, Cambridge

“Amazing dental practice who I have already highly recommended to all of my family and friends. Not only are all of the staff so helpful and friendly, but they have transformed my smile. I also recommend the Invisalign treatment as well as having bonding work, as Bim did an outstanding job! Thanks again.”
