Sure you go through the motions of brushing your teeth... but are you really doing it the right way?

You've been brushing your teeth for most of your life. You fill your brush with toothpaste, put it in your mouth, swirl and brush and spit.

Those are technically the steps, but it turns out there's a little more than swirling and spit.

I took a trip to Maintain Your Smile Dental for a few tips on the right way to brush and floss.

Huge thanks to Jenna for making sure I'm brushing at the right angle!

If you want to teach me how to do something, just let me know on Facebook, on Twitter or on YouTube.
