45 degree angle: Hold the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle at the interface between the tooth and the gums to optimize cleaning. You do not mention how old your child is, for a young child, brushing should be supervised, with the parent redoing the brushing after the child tries. The parent should also floss the teeth, to minimize caries.
