We all know how important it is to brush your teeth for two minutes, two times each day. And while we often discuss the importance of brushing your gums adequately, we find that many patients miss this frequently forgotten part of the mouth—the inside surface of your teeth!
The inside surface consists of the areas that face your tongue and palate. It’s easy and common for food and debris to build up in this area.
When brushing your teeth, it’s also crucial to use the correct amount of pressure—too soft and you won’t clean the area, while brushing too aggressively can cause bleeding.
Remember to brush the inner surface of your teeth by breaking up your brushing time—one minute for the outer surface and gums and one minute for the inside and tongue. For all your dental needs please call us at Riaz Dental on (02) 6862 1261.
