Dental Specialties Northwest Dental Tips

When it comes to oral hygiene brushing is essential. However, according Dental Hygienist Sam from Dental Specialties Northwest how you do it makes a big difference. This is especially true when it comes to getting in all of the nooks and crannies, especially in the back molars.

Hard to Brush Means More Decay

If you have crooked or broken teeth it can make it increasingly hard to brush. If that is your issue be sure to schedule an appointment. Decay will only get worse. If your teeth aren’t crooked or broken you still may want to try brushing with your other hand.

Become Ambidextrous When Brushing

Sam from Dental Specialties Northwest explains that using your non dominant hand might make it easier when trying to access difficult to brush areas in your mouth.

People have trouble accessing certain parts of their mouth depending on which hand is the dominant hand.
For example, people who are right hand dominant have a difficult time reaching the insides of the right side of the teeth. Switching things up and trying the other hand for a change just might help the situation.

Be Different when You Brush

In other words if you brush with your left hand you will have straight access to those teeth. It really is an amazing thing and it just might help you become ambidextrous.

For those that are unaware, ambidextrous is the ability to use both the left and right hand equally as well.
Bonus Tip: When you brush with your non dominant hand, you won’t be leaving as much plaque and food particles behind either.
