Brushing should stimulate your gums, if they bleed with normal brushing, that could be a symptom of gum disease and you should seek dental advice.When brushing your teeth it is best to place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your teeth, aiming the bristles of your brush toward the gum line. The join between the teeth and the gum is a nice niche for bacteria and plaque to accumulate, so it is important to get to this area.
Once you have the brush at the correct angle, all you need to do is jiggle the brush gently back and forward, only brushing one or two teeth at a time. Don’t be excessively vigorous but also don’t be too mild.
Remember. Your are trying to penetrate the bristles into the gaps between teeth to remove a very soft plaque.
You need to be systematic – brushing all teeth in order, inside and outside – and you really should do it in front of a mirror so you can see what you are doing.
Just resurrecting an old thread.......
Personally I’m not sure about atomising spray over a large area (esp upwind LOL). Although I don’t need to conceal my activities, I also don’t like seeing toothpaste all over the place.
I’m in favour of a small heel kick and bury, preferably in an already degraded spot, like on a nearby vehicle track (situation depending).
