Recommended Brushing Technique

The recommended technique for brushing your teeth is called the Modified Bass Technique demonstrated in this video.

  • Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gum line

  • Brush each tooth (or two to three at a time) using a gentle circular movement

  • Brush each tooth well and when finished, flick the toothbrush down the tooth, away from the gum line

  • Don’t forget to brush all of your teeth and all surfaces in this way – including the outer, inner and top surfaces of the teeth

  • Don’t forget to repeat the circular brushing movement over your tongue as well

Make sure you spend as much time brushing your molars as you do your front teeth and, of course, don’t forget to floss AND use interdental brushes like TePe brushes between your teeth. Use the BIGGEST size you can fit in each gap.
