Brush Twice a Day
Brush for 2-3 minutes to remove any build-up of plaque and food particles, but don’t brush too hard, or you’ll wear down the tooth enamel!
Brush and Floss After Eating Sugary Foods
If you can, try to brush and floss after eating sugary sweets, and if you can’t, then flush your teeth with water and keep your mouth moist.
Scrape Your Tongue
Don’t forget your tongue! Gently brush with your toothbrush or a tongue scraper to fight bad breath.
Remove any food particles trapped between your teeth that your toothbrush can’t reach. If you are concerned about the spacing or overlapping of your teeth, let our team know.
Adults should be consuming at least 2 litres of water daily to avoid a dry mouth and wash away food particles and bacteria.
Tobacco dries out the mouth, leaving an unpleasant lingering odour; what a great reason to quit!
