What is the best way to brush teeth?


• Place the toothbrush at a 45‐degree angle against the gums.

• Move the brush back and forth gently in short (tooth‐wide) strokes.

• Brush the outer tooth surfaces, the inner tooth surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.

• Use the "toe" of the brush to clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, using a gentle up‐and‐down stroke.

• Brush the tongue to remove bacteria and freshen breath. For more information please visit our Colgate Oral Care Resource Center to read, "How to Brush"  |  |  Legal Policies  |  Privacy Polices  |  Cookies Policy  |  Site Map  |  Contact Us
