Children’s hands and mouths are different than those of adults. They need to use toothbrushes designed for children. Both adults and children should use brushes with soft, rounded bristles for gentle cleaning. Change to a new toothbrush about every three months.
When you brush your teeth, move the brush in small circular motions to reach food particles that may be under your gum line. Hold the brush at a 45 degree angle towards teeth and gums. Move brush back and forth with short strokes, about a half tooth wide.
