- Aim your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle towards the gum line.
- Use a small pea-sized amount of toothpaste. That is all you need. No more, no less. This amount will get the job done.
- Use a light back and forth motion on the chewing surfaces. It’s important that you do this lightly. Don’t be too hard and aggressive. Be gentle. Brushing your teeth is not a race. Take your time and do it right.
