The bass technique involves brushing with cycling or vertical sweeping movement. Other brushing habits like brushing horizontally, and using too much force while brushing not only wears out the tooth enamel but also the toothbrush. Therefore if it happens that your kids toothbrush wears out quickly than yours then it might be that they have not they mastered or even know the proper brushing technique and principles.
