Check out these proper brushing techniques!
  1. Outer & Inner Surfaces: Place toothbrush at a 45-degree angle; starting along the gum line use gentle, short, tooth-wide strokes against the gum line.
     

  2. Chewing surfaces: Hold the brush flat and brush back and forth.
     

  3. Inside surface of front teeth: Tilt brush vertically; use gentle up-and-down strokes with toe of brush.
     

  4. Brush the tongue: Use a back-to-front sweeping method to remove food particles and freshen the mouth. Remember to gently brush the roof of the mouth too.
     

  5. Brush long enough to thoroughly clean all tooth surfaces. The brushing motion itself helps remove stains, so don’t cut short the effectiveness.
