**After spending my morning picking Tuna and onions out of a persons teeth, I decided to let you people in on a very VERY valuable secret. Please follow it and save me and yourself the agony.

How To Brush

Brush at 45 degree angle to your teeth. Use gentle circular massage motion. Don't scrub too hard or you will cause damage to your gums.

Clean every surface of every tooth. The chewing surface, the cheek side, and the tongue side.

Don't rush your brush. A thorough brushing should take at least 2 minutes

change your usual brushing pattern. If you brush your teeth the same way all the time, it means your missing the same spots all the time


Take a good amount of dental floss (preferably very thin type)

wrap it around your index and middle fingers, leaving around 2 inches between your hands

Slide the floss between your teeth and wrap it into a "c" shape around the base of your tooth, and gently under the gum line. Wipe the tooth from base to tip a couple of times.

Be sure to floss both sides of every tooth. Don't forget the backs of your last molars.
Go to a new section if the floss as it wears out.

Gums may bleed when you first begin to floss. That is normal. Bleeding usually stops after a few days, if bleeding does not stop, please see your dentist.

* Running your tooth brush on your tongue will help get rid of bacteria causing bad breath
* Use Alcohol free mouth wash
* Use a soft tooth brush
*Your toothbrush should be replaced every 3 months
*Massage your gums very gently starting from base of the mouth upwards
*Choose a size and shape of your toothbrush that will allow you to reach your back teeth
* Do not use alot of toothpaste, just a pea-size on the tip of your brush

March 20, 2007 at 7:59 AM  

Where's the part where you brush your tongue??? That's supposed to be the closure before flossing!!!

March 20, 2007 at 8:01 AM  

You forgot to include directions for using an electric toothbruth! I actually only learned how to use it properly about a year ago.

1.Put the toothpaste on your electric tooth brush and spread the paste all over your teeth

2.Now switch it on and start brushing!

I used to just switch it on 3ala 6ool!

And WHY in the world were u THAT close to someone's mouth picking Tuna...eeeeeeeeeeeeeeew! I hope they paid you well for your!

What about the people who use electric brush? ..I'm one of them! ...I think it's a great invention and it saves you more than half of this hassle. you ought to try it. :)

March 21, 2007 at 8:10 AM  

lmfao who eats tuna before seeing the dentist?!

honestly a little consideration would be in order.

they might as well have had a dump without wiping before seeing a proctologist :P

March 21, 2007 at 11:37 AM  

hahaha.... good one.

actually, its a relief cos i was worried it was a hobby. ;)

March 21, 2007 at 3:20 PM

March 21, 2007 at 3:46 PM  

a7es mara garaf hatha al2ensan with these bits in his mouth.
thats how i brush my teeth but thanx 4 the tips friend :)

March 21, 2007 at 4:05 PM  

Awesome post girl! useful and to the point. :D
Inzain I have a question. You said use a soft brush? Ana I always feel soft brushes dont get the job done because...well...theyre too soft and I feel it's better to scrub hard. Is it bad to use a medium brush?

March 21, 2007 at 6:05 PM  

it was totally disgusting!
and ur very welcome

1001 Nights
its not bad
bs i advise against hard scrubbing
it causes more damage than good especially to your gums.

March 21, 2007 at 6:21 PM  

Eeeew you poor thing!

Thanx for the tips but I have a suggestion.

Why don't you buy packs of cheap toothbrushes and keep em in ur clinic so when someone like that comes in you ask them to brush their teeth first.

You know I have a great idea, you can tell some dudes in the dentistry field to invent disposable tooth brushes for that purpose.

March 21, 2007 at 9:41 PM  

cool post!

I am thinking about that commercial with the kid and the people go "yalla yalla yalla yalla nadif asnanak!" to the kid until he goes "YALLA nadif asnanak" to his dad. I think it's signal 2. lol.

take care!

March 21, 2007 at 10:44 PM  

fee disposible toothbrushes, bs do u know how much itll cost the clinic
i dont think its an expense their willing to pay
and if i complain they'll tell me in here to lear. in other words shut up n deal with it.

glad u liked it
and hope it was helpful
that da3aya gets on my nerves.. lol

March 21, 2007 at 11:32 PM  

Did u know i actually take like over 5 minutes just brushing in the morning. and that i scrub as much of my tongue as possible?
Hehe i like having a clean mouth:)

Picking tuna and onions from a persons mouth is just wrong!

March 22, 2007 at 1:25 AM  

i love u ;Pp

thats really good
bs dont over do it, or u'll damage ur teeth
and floss baby!

March 22, 2007 at 2:12 AM  

I never went to a dentist in my life, and I'm 27 LOOOOL. If it ain't broke don't fix it ;P
Oh yeah and and between the ages of 9 and 14 I think I brushed my teeth 4 times. So I'm kind of afraid that if I go to the dentist s/he's gonna bring a sledgehammer and say, "well we better get these out of the way." It'll be like pimp my ride when they take out the whole engine from the car and throw it away :-S
Bss el7amdelah I never needed to go to a dentist. Behold the power of milk LOOOL.

March 22, 2007 at 6:36 AM  

not even for cleaning? or just a check up!
mo shar6 ykoon fe anything wrong! but u should go see if ur gna be losing ur teeth anytime soon!

milk aint gna save u!

March 22, 2007 at 1:44 PM  

3zayez you probably have dog breath and you don't even realize it.. yekh!!

and hellooooo there ms dentist :> i know so many of u it would be so funny if u were one of them! sej sej allah y3enich :S I always brush before going to the dentist, oo i don't understand why others don't!!

March 23, 2007 at 3:44 AM  

aaaaah ya enigma if only all my patients were like you
some dont brush for years! yes YEARS!
that same person was 19 n never brushed ever! plus shes been a smoker for 7 years! her gums were BLACK! so tuna was the least of my worries
