How to Brush

Did you know that it takes two to three minutes to brush your teeth properly but most people only spend 30 seconds or less?

Step 1

Squeeze a pea-sized blob of toothpaste onto a soft bristled brush.

Step 2

Brush gently using circular motions. If you brush too hard it can harm your gums.

Step 3

Brush all the surfaces of your teeth paying special attention to where the tooth meets the gum. This is where plaque builds up.

Step 4

Remember to brush behind your front teeth using the tip of the toothbrush.

Step 5

Keep brushing for at least two minutes and do this morning and night.
