Brushing - are we doing it right?

You’ve probably heard it all before: for the healthiest smile, you should brush your teeth at least twice a day. But is your brushing technique really getting the job done? Start with a soft-bristled brush that is comfortable to hold and reaches your entire mouth. Next, brush all surfaces of your teeth using a gentle, circular motion—let the tips of the bristles do the cleaning. Finally, brush the roof of your mouth, the insides of your cheeks and your tongue. This makes your whole mouth feel cleaner and keeps your breath fresh.
