Welcome to class!
In today’s class, we’re going to focus on an essential part of personal hygiene – teeth brushing. It’s not just about having a dazzling smile; it’s about keeping our teeth and gums healthy.
Teeth brushing is like a superpower that helps us fight off evil (germs) and keep our teeth strong and healthy. It’s a simple yet crucial habit.
Teeth Brushing Habits
Brush Twice a Day: Brush your teeth at least twice a day – once in the morning and once before bedtime. This helps remove food particles and plaque.
Use Fluoride Toothpaste: Use toothpaste that contains fluoride. Fluoride strengthens your teeth and helps prevent cavities.
Proper Brushing Technique: Hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gums. Brush in gentle circular motions, and don’t forget to brush the inside surfaces of your teeth and your tongue.
Replace Your Toothbrush: Change your toothbrush every 3-4 months or when the bristles start to fray. A fresh toothbrush is more effective at cleaning.
Don’t Rush: Take your time when brushing. It should take about two minutes to thoroughly clean your teeth.
Rinse and Spit: After brushing, rinse your mouth and spit out the toothpaste. Don’t swallow it.
Avoid Snacking After Brushing: Try not to eat or drink anything (except water) after your bedtime brush. This gives your teeth time to rest without being exposed to sugar.
Teeth brushing is a superhero routine that saves our teeth from the villainous cavities and keeps our smiles bright and healthy.
Explain why brushing your teeth at least twice a day is a crucial habit for personal hygiene.
Describe the proper teeth brushing technique, including the angle of the toothbrush, the motion used, and the areas to focus on.
