First stepPlace bristles along the gumline at a 45-degree angle. Bristles should contact both the tooth surface and the gum line. Gently brush the outer tooth surfaces of 2-3 teeth using a vibrating back & forth rolling motion. A rolling motion is when the brush makes contact with the gum line and is moved downward toward the chewing surface. Move brush to the next group of two to three teeth and repeat.
Maintain a 45-degree angle with bristles contacting the tooth surface and gumline. Gently brush using back, forth, and rolling motion along all of the inner tooth surfaces. Place the brush against the biting surface of the teeth & use a gentle back & forth scrubbing motion.
Tilt brush vertically behind the front teeth. Make several up & down strokes using the front half of the brush.
