Proper Brushing Technique

Total time needed: 2 minutes

Amount of paste
a pea sized amount of tooth paste is recommended
–Place the toothbrush bristles at a 45 degree angle on the front surface of the back teeth. Move the toothbrush in small circular motions. Make sure that you brush the tooth and especially the area where the tooth meets the gums.
–With this circular motion, slowly move forward towards the front teeth, clean off all food debris and plaque.
–Continue to move around the arch and cover the back teeth on the opposite side.
–Repeat these steps with the back of the teeth as well (the side of the teeth that is closest to the tongue)
–Next, place the toothbrush bristles on the chewing surfaces of the teeth
–Move the toothbrush back in forth in a “scrubbing motion”. Be sure to brush the chewing surfaces of all teeth, even the front teeth.
Rinse the brush with water after use. Let the brush dry out after every use.
