Switch on the brush, place the head on the last tooth in the mouth (check the angle), and move the head gradually (over approximately 2 seconds) from the back to the front of this tooth.
Try to follow the contours of both the teeth and the gums. Place the brush head on the next tooth, and repeat this process.
Allow the electric toothbrush to do the work. It is not necessary to press hard or make brushing movements.
Use a timer! Many brushes will provide some form of signal after 30 seconds (the apparatus stops for a moment). This is the point at which to move on to a new part of the mouth. Remember to clean the brush and its head thoroughly when finished.
