1) Hold your brush at a 45-degree angle against the gum-line. Gently brush from where the tooth and gum meet to the chewing surface in short strokes that are about half-a-tooth-wide. Brushing your teeth too hard can cause your gums to recede, tooth sensitivity, and, over time, loose teeth.
2) Use the same method to brush all outside and inside surfaces of your teeth.
3) To clean the chewing surfaces of your teeth, use short sweeping strokes, tipping the bristles into the pits and crevices.
4) To clean the inside surfaces of your top and bottom front teeth and gums, hold the brush almost vertical. With back and forth motions, bring the front part of the brush over the teeth and gums.
5) Using a forward-sweeping motion, gently brush your tongue and the roof of your mouth to remove the decay-causing bacteria that exist in these places.
6) Use an egg timer or play a favorite song while brushing your teeth to get used to brushing for a full 2 to 3 minutes. Some electronic toothbrushes have timers that let you know when 2 minutes are up.
