Brushing

Place the multi-level bristles of the Action Cup" onto the biting edge of the teeth and apply gentle pressure. The Action Cup will help guide the bristles to the correct 45 degree angle, aiming the bristles into the gumline. Use small, circular motions, keeping the tips of the bristles more or less in the same place. This will ensure that the bristles remove plaque from under the gumline and in between teeth -the high risk areas where gum disease starts. Spend about 10 seconds on each tooth. Concentrate on brushing each tooth individually. ~ain,with small, circular strokes, remove plaque from all outer surfaces of lower and upper teeth (the surfaces that lie against the inside of your cheek). The longer bristles of the Power Tip" will reach between teeth and behind the last molar tooth, areas where plaque can be most difficult to remove. Clean the .upper and lower side teeth (alongside your tongue and palate) in the same manner.

To clean behind the front teeth, turn the Plaque Remover as shown and use the Power Tip. Applying the same circular brushing action, make sure you can feel the bristles at the gumline and between the teeth. Use the longer bristles of the Power Tip to remove plaque from behind the last molar. Use a bacl -- and-forth stroke to brush the biting surfaces on both upper and lower molars. Make sure you extend to the last molar (at the very back ofyour mouth).

 

Flossing

The nylon bristles of a Plaque Remover penetrate the interproximal space and gum margin. However, dental floss is essential for optimal cleaning in these areas. Use about 18 inches of floss, wrapped around your middle fingers. With your thumbs, guide the floss gently and carefully between upper teeth, using a back-and-forth motion. For lower teeth, use index fingers. Avoid "snapping" the floss against delicate gum tissue. Curve the floss around each tooth in a"C" shape and gently guide it up and under the gumline. Move it up and down the side of each tooth, scraping away plaque. Use a new section of floss for each tooth.

If you have gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), it is normal to experience alittle bleeding when you first start to floss. As your gums get healthier, the bleeding will stop. If bleeding persists, consult your dentist or hygienist.
