Brushing

Step 1

Start with the outside of the teeth, with the brush at a straight angle. Use circular, vibrating motions.

Step 2

Clean the area between the gums and braces by angling the brush down (up for the lower jaw). Keep moving in a small circular motion.

Step 3

Clean the rest of the outside of the teeth by angling the brush up (down for the lower jaw).

Step 4

Carefully brush the chewing surface of both the upper and lower jaw.

Step 5

Finish by brushing the inside of the teeth.
