Brushing / Flossing

 

Brushing

  • Step 1 – Place bristles along the gum line at a 45 degree angle.  Gently brush using a circular motion along tooth surfaces.
  • Step 2 – Brush each tooth individually!  Tilt brush vertically behind the front teeth.  Using the front half of the brush use the same circular motion.
  • Step 3 – Place the brush against the biting surface of the teeth and use a gentle back and forth motion.  Brush the tongue to remove odor producing bacteria, or use a tongue scraper.

 

Flossing

Wind 18″ of floss around middle fingers.  Pinch floss between thumbs and index fingers, leaving 1″-2″ length in between.  Use thumbs to direct floss between upper teeth, and index fingers for lower teeth.
