bristles and toothpaste facing upso that the toothbrush is lined up
horizontally with your front teeth, but hovering just underneath them
Move the toothbrush left and right, so that you are brushing the
bottom of your front teeth. Do 10 strokes (forward and backward equals 2
Now, move the toothbrush so that the bristles are pressing against the
front of your front teeth, and move back and forth. Do 10 strokes.
Place the toothbrush so that the bristles are pressing against the back
of your front teeth (to the best of your ability). The best way to achieve this is
by placing the toothbrush so that it is perpendicular to your teeth, rather

than in line with them. Do 10 strokes (pushing in and pulling out, rather than
moving the toothbrush from side to side).
Repeat steps 10 through 13 with each section of the top set of teeth in
your mouth. [side note: step 13 will always be the most difficult. Just try your

[side note: The following is the last set of steps]

Clamp teeth together, though do not put much pressure between
them, and open your mouth, as if giving a VERY big toothy smile.
Take the toothbrush and rub the bristles in a circular motion that
covers both the top and bottom front teeth. Alternate between little and big
circles, doing about 5 of each.
Repeat step 19 for all sides of your teeth, keeping your teeth clenched
and brushing both the top and bottom rows in alternating circles.
Remove toothbrush from your mouth and place on flat surface. If you
have a towel or piece of paper (something that you dont mind getting wet or
getting toothpaste on), place the toothbrush on that. Close your mouth
immediately after removing the toothbrush, so that nothing drips of it.
Take the cup filled with water, and sip some of the water out of it
without swallowing it.
Swish the water around in your mouth, about 5 times or until your
teeth feel clean, and spit it back into the cup.
If your teeth feel like they still have toothpaste on them, you can
repeat step 23.
Place toothbrush in cup of water.
Screw the cap back on the toothpaste.
