How do you correctly go about brushing your teeth?

I know there is a correct way. I just don't know what it is.

Your dentist or hygentist will be able to show you. Use your toothbrush and go in little circles all the way around and brush at an angle around the gums.

Firstly you must remember that every part of every tooth must be brushed so approach methodically from the last molar on one side working around to the last molar on the other side. Use small circles on the cheek facing surface - don't scrub as scrubbing removes cementum and causes sensitivity, scrub the chewing surfaces and flick on the inside.

You must brush your teeth at least twice a day, if possible brush it three times, once after every meal. Brush your teeth in a circular motion being sure to get all areas.
