“Down on the uppers and up on the lowers,” or so the old saying went. Then came the itty-bitty circles method that had us awkwardly pushing big brushes across our small teeth in fast loops. Now, Price says the best way to brush is whatever gets at your gum line because that’s where plaque lingers. (So technically, it’s more like up on the uppers and down on the lowers for anyone keeping track.) Make extra sure you’re getting the tongue-side of your bottom teeth, too. Price says it's a key spot people often neglect.
