Proper Brushing Technique


The Bass method:

  • Place your toothbrush at a 45 degree angle to the gums.

  • Gently move the brush back and forth in short strokes. 

  • Brush the outer surfaces, the inner surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.

  • To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, hold the brush vertically brush in small up and down.

Brushing your teeth is only a part of a complete dental care routine. You should also make sure to:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas

  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth.

  • Make sure to use an ADA accepted fluoride toothpaste.

  • Floss at least once a day to remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line. Tooth decay-causing bacteria still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach.

  • Eat a balanced diet that limits sugary beverages and snacks.

  • See your dentist regularly for prevention and treatment of oral disease.
