The arrangement of teeth inside the mouth is very beautiful by nature, once we put a morsel of food inside the mouth for eating. The upper and the lower teeth comes in contact for chewing the food. The food gets broken down into smaller particles for further digestion. The same food that we chew also glides over the tooth surfaces cleaning the teeth, massaging the gums not once for several times as we keep chewing the food.

The rubbing action of the cheeks the tongue and lips also contribute to this effect and the flushing action of the saliva also helps in the whole process this is called the natural cleaning process and once this is done the food goes into the stomach for further digestion. Even after good mastication certain food particles gets stuck between the teeth. The food gets stuck because the food that we eat is processed these days. To remove these food particles that are stuck we need to use toothbrush. You should use toothbrush after the meals. So whenever you pick up a toothbrush you should remember 3 things
