    I've been looking for studies/articles done on the subject of vertically vs. horizontally brushing ones teeth and I've only found a few traces in my search. If you guys know of a trial or have any links to some article I'd greatly appreciate the help.

    There is a right way to brush and then there is everything else that most people end up doing. But brushing is neither an art nor a science – it is as simple as following the right instructions and forming the right habits.

    I hear teaching patients how to scale their own teeth is the new fad

    In all seriousness they should be doing circles anyways.

    Didn't they make some custom trays you just bite into that brush every crevice of all your teeth at once? Or is that my newest million dollar idea?
