Correct way to brush teeth?

So what is the correct/best way to brush your teeth?
I'm used to brushing side to side when I'm using regular brush.
I use my OralB electric brush at night and in the morning I use a regular brush.

My bottom canine tooth is kinda sensitive because the gum on the bottom has receded a bit. I searched online and came up with two possible causes. One because of my teeth grinding (night) and 2 because I'm brushing too hard in the morning when I'm using my regular brush.

Anyone have this problem and how did you fix it?

I suggest you go speak to a licensed dental professional.

Re: Correct way to brush teeth?

1.  Buy toothbrush.
2.  Put toothbrush under water.
3.  Put toothpaste on brush.
4.  Put brush in mouth.
5.  Move brush back and forth.
6.  Take brush out of mouth.
7.  Spit.
8.  Rinse.
9. Stab yourself in the eye with the brush for not knowing.

Seriously though, go buy some Sensodine.

Re: Correct way to brush teeth?

Relieve all pressure from your wrist while brushing. AKA, let the weight of the brush do the brushing, don't force down the brush on your teeth.

But seriously, this thread is more random than my "What the Heck did I Kill" thread.

Re: Correct way to brush teeth?

rumor has it, you should use bar soap that doesn't have glycerin instead of toothpaste. apparantly, toothpaste leaves a layer of glycerin on your teeth that takes like 20 rinses to get off which prevents your enamel from strengthing/rebuilding it self.

i guess there is organic bar soap that doesnt taste so terrible. havent tried it though

Re: Correct way to brush teeth?

My gums are sensitive so I use a soft toothbrush. Most people brush too hard. If your bristles are bending over time, you brush too hard.
