Advice from dentist Dr. Hans Dieter Schwertfeger:
Correct brushing technique

Teeth are not just an expression of our vitality, but of our internal development. When a child's permanent teeth come in, it is an important step on the path to adulthood.

 

Brush your teeth after every meal. Hold the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle with the bristles pointing toward the gums, and brush the teeth using a light, vibrating motion starting at the gums. Be careful not to apply too much pressure. The vibrating motion massages the gums, which stimulates circulation to the area and thus helps the body eliminate inflammatory substances. Regular brushing will also prevent the formation of plaque, which can be removed mechanically as long as it has not hardened. And the fortifying ingredients of the toothpaste can act directly on surfaces that are not covered with plaque. You should buy a new toothbrush every three months.

When brushing your teeth, only scrub the chewing surfaces. Clean gums and fronts and backs of teeth using a vibrating motion
