Are you brushing your teeth the 'right' way?

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 12, 2014

Most of us brush and floss everyday. But apparently, some of us aren't doing it right.

Dentists recommend brushing for at least two minutes with a light to medium force. That means, you don't have to be so rough.

Many dentists recommend using a soft toothbrush.

In the end, dentists say the most important thing is that you're actually brushing.

Tooth decay can cause all kinds of problems including abscesses and inflammation in the body that can lead to heart disease.
