Brushing

 

Cleaning

 

Use small circular movements with the brush held at 45 degrees to the tooth. Move systematically around the mouth remembering to clean the inside surfaces and the biting surfaces. A good technique will take 2 minutes.

 

Interdental brushing

 

Flossing

 

Used daily, it removes plaque and debris where your usual brush cannot reach. For spaces at the back of the mouth, bend the brush in a slight curve to help you access the more difficult to reach areas.

A choice of 8 colour-coded sizes is available to help clean different sized spaces.
