  • Brush at least twice a day.
  • Either a manual toothbrush or a electric toothbrush can be used.
  • A toothbrush should be changed every 2 – 3 months.
  • Always use a soft brush with a small head for easier access.


Manual Toothbrush

With a manual toothbrush it is important to apply the brush tips in a certain way, so that each surface of each tooth can be reached. Slight pressure can be applied for a thorough brushing effect.  If the head is smaller, you will have easier access inside the mouth.

Electric Toothbrush


With a power-assisted brush the brush action is built in. The only muscle training required is turning the handle to apply the brush to each surface of the tooth and holding it on each surface for a reasonable length of time in a correct position.
