First of all, before you start brushing your teeth, check the charge of your electric toothbrush. A special indicator will tell you how long the charge will last. Remember to also check the condition of the brush head. If it is worn out, replace it - this is recommended every two to four months.

Now move on to brushing your teeth. Lightly dampen the brush and apply a small amount of toothpaste. Select a cleaning mode; there may be several depending on the model.

Position the brush head at a 45° angle along the gum line. Start with the corner teeth and move to the front teeth. Clean the inside first and then the outside. Watch the pressure to avoid damaging the gums. Turn on the brush only after it has been positioned in your mouth.

When brushing, watch the timer that indicates how much time you should spend brushing each area of your mouth. This will help you distribute the time evenly. Move the brush slowly from one tooth to the next, taking a few seconds for each tooth.

After all areas have been successfully cleaned, rinse your mouth and use a mouthwash if necessary. By using your electric toothbrush correctly, you will provide your smile with effective care and keep your gums healthy.
