My teeth are in great condition but sometimes after I brush my teeth and floss, I notice there is some yellowish stuff on some of my teeth. Apparently Im not getting all the plaque off from brushing so I was wondering if I could remove it meticulously using a dental kit from walmart? I had a cleaning like 3 months ago so I cant go to the dentist. Please help, thank you

I don't think you can ask for any medical/dental advice on here?

There is only one way to find out.

Yeah they're not stains, they are like gel like material that is stuck on the tooth but can be removed with a toothbrush but not effectively at all. Should I do it to prevent tartar buildup?

Can someone provide a link to proper brushing technique because I have watched 5+ videos on youtube and they are all kind of different so not sure what to follow

Look up bass brushing technique. Maybe consider an electric toothbrush as well.

I have had both sonicare and oral b and I like the oral b 5000 the best. Not really sure what you consider affordable, but oral b is at a lower price point than sonicare.

I prefer Oral-B as well, just make sure you take your time brushing and adjust a brush head to a curvature of teeth to achieve good results
