Dr. Suman Reddy and Dr. Keerthi recommend using a soft or medium-sized toothbrush. Position the brush at a 45-degree angle where the gums and teeth meet. Move the brush several times in circular motions with small, gentle strokes as you brush the outer surfaces of your teeth. Apply light pressure while placing the bristles between your teeth, but not too much so that you don’t feel any discomfort. When you are done cleaning the outside surfaces of all of your teeth, follow the same instructions for cleaning the inside of your molars.
To clean the inner surfaces of the upper and lower front teeth, hold the brush vertically. Make several gentle backs and forth motions on each tooth. Be sure to gently brush the surrounding gum tissue.
Then clean the surface of the biting teeth with short, gentle strokes. Change the position of the brush as often as necessary to reach and clean all surfaces. Try to look at yourself in the mirror to make sure you clean all surfaces. When you’re done, rinse thoroughly to remove any plaque that may have peeled off from the brushing.
