Using the Floor

An easy way to brush your loved ones teeth is to sit on the floor.

How to do it:

  • Sit on the floor and have your loved one positioned on your lap
  • Position the individual’s arm to the side
  • If the individual is moving you can wrap your legs around the arms
  • If the individual is moving and you have a second person to help, have the second person hold the arms
  • Position your hand under the chin to lift and support the head
  • If the individual is not keeping his or her mouth open, check out our tips and tricks on “saying ah”
