There is a proper tooth brushing technique. First, place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums. Second, gently move the brush back and forth in short (tooth-wide) strokes. Then brush the outer surfaces, the inner surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Finally, to clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes. Watch the following video to see how to properly brush your teeth…

Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush.

Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.

Make sure to use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.
