Selfies While You Brush Can Boost Dental Cleanliness

Posted on 10/20/2016 by Boeckel
A man taking a selfie with his phone.Have you ever taken a selfie? Most people will answer yes to that statement, but have you ever taken a selfie while brushing your teeth? Most people will answer no to that one. If you have never considered taking a selfie - either a still or a video - while you are brushing, you may want to start.

Many people are finding out that they can see some of the things they do not do as well when they watch a video of themselves brushing. It is helping them correct their bad dental habits and leaving them with a cleaner mouth.

What to Look for with Brushing Selfies

Initially, you want to look for how long you brush each individual tooth. It should show you that you cover each tooth up and down, plus side to side, on every surface of the tooth. You also want to make sure that you are getting to each and every tooth in your mouth. If you notice that you are missing a tooth here and there, you can then see where you need to focus on in your mouth to get a better overall clean.

You also want to make sure that your flossing routine is up to par. You need to get between each tooth and all the way around your mouth without missing anything. Seeing yourself brush and floss can give you insight as to what areas of your mouth you pay the most attention to, and which areas are just glossed over.

Take the time and do this quick on one of your days off. You may be surprised at what you see and how it leaves you feeling when you go back and brush and floss properly. It could help improve your overall dental health and give you a brighter, cleaner smile.
