Plaque build-up can lead to inflamed gums. A mouth rinse can help by removing the plaque and reducing the inflammation.
Angle the bristles at 45º to the gum line. There’s no need to scrub – hold the brush in position and after a few seconds sweep the bristles away from the gum. Repeat around the outer and inner surfaces of all teeth. Particularly effective inter-dentally. The whole procedure should take about 2 minutes.
