A simple brushing technique:
Place the head of your toothbrush against your teeth and then tilt the bristle tips to a 45% angle against the gumline. Move the brush in small circular movements, several times, on all the surfaces of the tooth.
Brush the outer surfaces of each tooth, upper and lower, keeping the bristles, angled against the gum line. Use the same method on the inside surfaces of all your teeth. Brush the chewing surfaces of the teeth. To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several small circular strokes with the toe (the front part) of the brush. Brushing the tongue will help freshen your breath and will clean your mouth by removing bacteria.
If you struggle brushing for the recommended two minutes, visit the Brush DJ website for a completely free app that plays your favourite music for two minutes whilst you brush your teeth!
You can also use it to set yourself reminders to brush your teeth twice a day, carry out interdental cleaning and use a mouthwash (if recommended by your dentist).
