Thank you, for revisiting how to use the Bass toothbrush and using the model mouth. I appreciate you, making another video. I had requested a new video, where I could see the technique being outside of your mouth. Thank you!

I use an electric toothbrush because I lack the dexterity required for manual brushing.

Thank you so much for all this information. I wish that we were all educated about correct tooth brushing as children. I have caused so much damage to my gums & teeth through rigorous brushing in the past, without having this knowledge 😁
