Do you brush your mouth correctly? Many people only brush part of their teeth rather than their entire mouth. To get the best results from brushing, it is important to understand how to best brush your teeth.

Our doctor, Dr. Thomas E. Wold, wants you to have great oral health. As a result, our team at Dr Thomas E. WOLD Dentistry in Bend, Oregon, is excited to help you.

The best way to remember to brush your entire mouth is to do it in the same order every time. Start with the outer surfaces of the top of your mouth and then the bottom. Remember to massage your gums with your brush during this time. Follow up by cleaning the inner surfaces, again working on your top teeth and then bottom. Finish up by cleaning all of the chewing surfaces of your teeth, top and bottom. Once you’re done, if you want a fresher breath, make sure to brush your tongue too.

If you follow this pattern twice a day, you could be helping your teeth stay healthy for years to come. If you have any questions about your oral health or need to see a doctor for help, please call us today at 541.389.1301. We look forward to seeing you.
