Brushing 101 #ChurchDwightValue

Double, double toil and trouble. Fall baking and left over Halloween candy can certainly spell trouble for the teeth. Make sure you and your family are up to speed on the best ways to avoid cavities. Using the right tools and techniques can help stop cavities from digging a ghoulish hole in your teeth.

First off, make sure you are equipped with the right tools.  The Truly Radiantβ„’ Extra White Manual Toothbrush is the only manual brush that features a unique rotating head, plus elongated all-access bristles designed to blast away surface stains. Using this brush will not only help keep teeth pearly white, it will also help brush away any newly formed cavities caused by Halloween overindulgence. Pair this with the Truly Radiantβ„’ Rejuvenating Toothpaste and you have yourself a winning cavity fighting pair.

 Perfect technique is important too. The best way to clean your teeth is to hold the brush at a 45-degree angle using short strokes and an up and down motion. Brushing like this will help remove any plaque or bacteria that can build up on the teeth and gums. Most dentists recommend brushing for a minimum of two minutes to thoroughly remove plaque and combat bad breath.  When brushing, be gentle and avoid brushing too hard. Make sure the entire mouth gets cleaned by brushing the outer and inner tooth surfaces, back molars, and by doing a few passes over the tongue, a popular spot for bacteria.

Lastly, how old is your toothbrush? If the bristles are starting to separate or look frayed it is probably time for a new one. Three to four months is usually a good guideline for toothbrush longevity.

Use these brushing techniques to scare those cavities away for good!

  1. Love this toothpaste it’s the only one that I buy and use!! never knew about the toothbrushes because I use the Sonic, but it’s great to know that Arm and Hammer has them too!!!

  2. I’ve just got one of these toothbrushes for my son. I’ve bought various electric & sonic toothbrushes over the years for my children but they all gave up using them after a while, back to the normal toothbrush.

  3. Taking enough time to do a good job of cleaning teeth, is important, but something I often neglect. Thanks for the refresher course.
