Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes (roughly 30 seconds in each quarter of your mouth). This removes plaque, which causes tooth decay and gum disease.
The technique you use plays an important factor and our dentist will only be more then happy to help show you. Avoid using excessive force to avoid damage to the surface of the tooth. Also avoid using excessive force near the gums.
Flossing helps to clean between your teeth since brushing alone cannot adequately clean this area. If you’re unsure how to floss our dentist will be happy to show you. For large spaces piksters/interdental brushes are highly recommended to remove plaque and food debris.
Top dental tips:
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head.
- Try to replace your brush typically every three months.
- A pea-sized amount of toothpaste is perfect to help clean your teeth.
- You should floss once a day
