How to brush your teeth effectively

Move systematically around the mouth.

Remember to clean the inside surfaces and the biting surfaces.

Dont forget behind the top and bottom teeth.

A good technique will take 2 minutes.

Are you flossing?

Use the floss with a vertical action until all the plaque is removed.

Work the floss gently under the gum.
