What is the proper way to brush your teeth?
Your toothbrush is your most powerful weapon in the fight against plaque but it’s very important to brush your teeth properly to ensure you are getting the benefits from brushing.
Plaque is soft and easily removed so choose a soft toothbrush.
Simply brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing to remove plaque between your teeth daily can make a real difference.
How to brush your teeth
1. Brush all sides of your teeth – the inside or tongue side, the outside or cheek side and the top where you chew.
2. Point the bristles towards the gums.
3. Gently wiggle the toothbrush back and forth.
4. Don’t forget to brush your tongue.
