CS single: the solo technique
The trick consists of:Use gentle agitating movements along the gumline, almost without any pressure: using precise, gentle, movements almost without any pressure, follow the gum line closely with your CS single.
It takes a bit of practice...
... but it’s worthwhile. This is the way to clean one of the most important areas to perfection – the gum line. In time, you will become skilled and be able to clean so intuitively that you can even read a book while doing it. No toothpaste needed.
Follow the gum line using gentle agitating movements, almost without any pressure: using precise, gentle, movements almost without any pressure, follow the gum line closely with your CS single. Here it is in detail:
1. Hold your CS single upright and to one side of the tooth’s surface. No toothpaste is required, by the way.
2. When you do this, you should be able to just carefully enter the gumline with the outer bristles of the tuft head.
3. Now move the CS single with precise, gentle movements carefully along the gum line, from one side of the tooth to the other. Always keep the tuft head upright and parallel to the tooth surface.
4. Work on the inside like you did on the outside: position your CS single at one end of the tooth. Touching the gum line carefully, clean the tooth using the same principle as on the front.
And now: the next tooth. Remember: don’t forget the chewing surface.
