Some people will brush their teeth after each meal, however, the minimum recommended time is twice a day for at least two minutes of brushing.

Hold the toothbrush flat on your teeth and use a back and forth motion. Brush each side of your teeth on the top and bottom. Adding a few small circles with the bristles will allow the brush to get into more of those little areas between your teeth.

Step 3

Brush the inside of your front teeth on the top and bottom, then tilt the brush to clean the front of your teeth with an up and down motion.
