Some pointers on brushing your upper teeth

  • Ideally begin your teeth brushing by starting from your upper set of teeth
  • Divide your upper set of teeth into three sets so that it becomes easier to brush
  • Begin form the left end of the back of your upper teeth, and systematically move towards the right end
  • Wet your brush and wet your mouth before you begin brushing
  • Ensure that the side portions of your toothbrush’s bristles completely touch your teeth. This way the space in between the teeth gets cleaned!
  • Also ensure that you hold the toothbrush in the correct position so that the end of the bristles enter and touch the gums
  • The outside of your upper teeth should be brushed in an up-down motion
  • The inside of your upper teeth should be brushed in a swipe motion

Some Don’ts!

  • Don’t randomly begin brushing from wherever you feel like without covering every tooth of the upper mouth
  • Don’t move around while brushing
  • Don’t adopt any arbitrary technique to brush your upper teeth
  • Don’t brush just one portion of your teeth

Happy Brushing!
