Don’t Rush in Brushing your Teeth

Dr. Amarquaye-Bayitse, who is a resident dentist of Pepsodent Ghana’s Dental TV Show, has cautioned Ghanaians that brushing the teeth should take more than two (2) minutes.

She indicated that, brushing aids in removing plaque from our teeth as such, using two minutes or less to achieve this is not achievable.


“The first step to brushing correctly is making sure you’re prepared with the right tools. You’ll need a toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste like Pepsodent,” the dentist said, as quoted by 3news.


“Lubricate your brush with a small amount of water. Put a small amount of toothpaste on the toothbrush bristles. Insert the toothbrush into your mouth at about a 45-degree angle to your gums and use gentle, short strokes.

“Flip the toothbrush upside down to get the inside surface of your top front tooth. Flip it back around to get the inside surface of your bottom front tooth.”

Dr. Amarquaye-Bayitse added: “To avoid any issues with your teeth, it is very important to use fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush and remember to change it every 3 months. Also, do well to visit the dentist regularly and avoid sugary foods. Drink more water. Brush with the family.”

Brushing of ones teeth is an integral part of maintaining a good personal and oral hygiene. Doing this the right way can help boost your appetite, morale and confidence in executing tasks assigned to you.
