You brush your teeth twice a day…I hope!
If you’re spending time on something, it’s important to make sure you’re doing it right.
We’re big believers in the phrase,
Anything worth doing is worth doing right.”
This absolutely applies to brushing your teeth.

We want to help.
Here are two ways for you to improve your tooth brushing skills. Whether you prefer to learn by reading or watching a video, we’ve got something for you.
Want to see a demonstration?
Check out this great animation from Oral-B demonstrating the proper technique. The video shows an electric toothbrush. The same steps apply, but with a manual toothbrush you have to do the rotations yourself. (Consider it an arm workout as well! Just don’t completely skip the gym.)
