4 To make sure you brush evenly throughout the mouth, divide your mouth into 4 sections: outside top, inside top, outside bottom and inside bottom teeth. Begin brushing in section 1 (outside top teeth) and brush for 30 seconds before moving to section 2 (inside top teeth). Continue brushing for 30 seconds in each section progressing through all 4 sections until you’ve brushed for 2 minutes.
5 After the 2-minute brushing cycle is complete, additional
time should be spent brushing the chewing surfaces of your teeth. Press the power button to turn the brush on and off as needed. To clean your mouth more completely, you may also brush your tongue, with the toothbrush turned on or off, as you prefer.
