Brushing your teeth is different for everybody. Try start off by aiming your tooth brush at a 45 degree angle towards the gum line. To know if you are doing it right you should feel the bristles of the toothbrush slightly between your teeth and along the gum line.  If you are unsure that you are cleaning your teeth properly you may want to try some disclosing tablets. These will turn the plaque red so you can see what areas you are missing with your toothbrush.

When using a powered toothbrush the most important thing is to be gentle. You do not need to use a brushing motion because the head of the brush is already doing this. You just need to focus it on each tooth and you should feel the bristles around the tooth. Move the toothbrush over and around each tooth for about 5-10 seconds.
