Grip your toothbrush like a pencil
Does your toothbrush look as if its been used to clean the car? If so, youre probably brushing too hard. Contrary to what some scrub-happy people think, brushing with force is not the best way to remove plaque. The best way is to place your toothbrush at a 45 degree angle against your gums and gently move it in a circular motion, rather than a back-and-forth motion. Grip the toothbrush like a pencil so you wont scrub too hard.
