Brush your teeth - a key part of care

Brushing your teeth twice a day is the foundation of a healthy and beautiful mouth. In this chapter, you will learn how to take good care of your teeth and gums using the right brushing method and how to choose the best toothbrush for your needs.

Choosing the Right Toothbrush

There are many different types of toothbrushes available on the market, so how do you choose the right one for you? Here are a few tips to help you make the right choice:


Manual toothbrushes

These are traditional toothbrushes that are available in different bristle strengths. Choose a soft or medium brush to avoid damaging your enamel and gums. Manual toothbrushes are convenient and don’t take up much space. They clean all surfaces of the teeth quite well and improve the blood circulation in the mucous membrane, acting as a good massage.


Electric toothbrushes

Electric toothbrushes offer more effective and more thorough cleaning thanks to the automatic movement of the head. They are ideal for people with limited hand mobility and for those who want to achieve even better results.


Sonic toothbrushes

Sonic toothbrushes work on the principle of high frequency vibrations, which helps to remove plaque and tartar more effectively. They are gentle on the gums and effective in cleaning. An additional advantage is the quieter operation compared to electric toothbrushes.

Brushing Techniques - Discover the Technique for Yourself

• Move the toothbrush slowly and gently, slowly moving it from one tooth to another
• Touch each surface of the tooth and the gum line for a few seconds
• Do not make additional forward-backward movements (front-back)

• Hold the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle to the gums
• Perform a sweeping motion from the gum to the tip of the crown of the tooth (outer and inner surfaces)
• The inner surfaces of the lower front teeth are brushed by holding the toothbrush vertically using the end of the brush head
• The chewing surfaces of the maxilla and mandible teeth are cleaned with toothbrush movements forward and backward
• Do not press the toothbrush too hard against the surface of the teeth

• The technique is based on 3 steps: apply – clean – move
• Hold the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle in the direction of the gum line
• You can also perform gentle circular movements

Frequency and Brushing Time

Daily toothbrushing should take place at least twice a day – morning and evening, after meals. Avoid excessive pressure on the teeth and gums to avoid damaging them. We recommend that the brushing time be at least 2 minutes for each brushing.

Customize your toothpaste to your needs

The choice of the right toothpaste depends on your individual needs and preferences. Here are a few tips to help you make the right decision:

Pay attention to the composition

Choose toothpastes that contain ingredients that have been proven to be safe and effective, such as fluoride, silica or hydroxyapatite.

What results do you expect?

If your priority is protection against tooth decay, a fluoride toothpaste is recommended. If you have sensitive teeth, opt for a toothpaste for sensitive teeth. On the other hand, if you dream of a white smile, choose a whitening toothpaste.
