Using A Soft Bristle Tooth Brush

  • Press the dry bristles into the free margin of the gums to remove plaque, food and bacteria.
  • Press dry bristles twenty times in each free margin area of the gums.
  • Sip the soft bristles dry, or rinse with water and tap brush dry between each of the 20 gum presses.

Using Dental Floss

  • Use an up and down movement, then pull the floss out from between the teeth.
  • Do not go back through the contacts.
  • Next, use the Hydrofloss and irrigate with water to remove any loose plaque, food and bacteria.
