Tooth Brushing

How to Brush Your Teeth

Tooth brushing is a form of hygiene, in which a person cleans their teeth with a toothbrush.

To brush your teeth correctly, spend at least two minutes using a recommended technique, which includes 30 seconds brushing each section of your mouth (upper right, upper left, lower right and lower left), both morning and night. Since most manual toothbrushes don’t have built-in two-minute timers, you may want to have a clock handy so you can be sure you’re brushing long enough.

Positioning The Toothbrush

How you hold the toothbrush depends on which part of the tooth you’re brushing.
