Don’t Forget To Do These Hygiene Habits Every Day

The Best Way To Brush Your Teeth

According to the American Dental Association, you should brush your teeth twice a day. But your dental health won’t go far if you don’t brush your teeth correctly. One common mistake, according to dentist Matt Messina, is that people scrub too hard. Massage your teeth gently; don’t scrub.

Another common mistake is rushing through the process. The American Dental Association recommends brushing for around two minutes. And remember to stick to twice a day. According to a survey by Hello Products, one in ten millennials only brush once a day.
