  • It’s important to cover all tooth surfaces especially areas behind, between, and top surfaces of the teeth.

  • It’s not only about cleaning areas of the teeth visible to the eyes as bacteria can also thrive where eyes can’t readily see. Show them that you, too, commit to good dental hygiene habits.
