Keep teeth for life

Follow simple tips below to keep your teeth for life

​1. Brush twice a day, using fluoride toothpaste

Brush for at least two minutes, twice a day.
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush with small head and flexible neck. A basic
“Sonic tooth brush” would make it easier and more efficient with cleaning your smile.
Clean teeth systematically, holding toothbrush at gum line at a 45-degree
angle.
Don’t press too hard – too much pressure can damage gums and tooth
enamel.
Choose a toothpaste with fluoride and replace your toothbrush
head every three months.

2. Use floss at least once a day

Make flossing part of your oral hygiene regime.
Floss at least once a day use Dental Floss OR Water Floss
Ask your dentist to demonstrate the correct flossing technique.
Ask your dentist if interdental aids will complement your flossing.
Your children should floss too, start as soon as your child has two teeth that
touch

3. Eat healthy and have less sugary drinks and food

Limit your sugar intake as its the single biggest cause of tooth decay.
Fluoridated tap water is best.
Read ingredients label on food products as many have hidden sugars.
Choose teeth friendly foods such as cheese, nuts and vegetables.
Avoid snacking and grazing.

4. Have regular dental check-ups

Make sure you visit your dentist regularly, at least once a year!
