  • Brushing: Brush your teeth last thing at night and at least one other time during the day with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • In Between Teeth: Clean between your teeth at least once a day using interdental brushes or floss.
  • Mouthwash: Don’t use mouthwash right after you’ve brushed because rinsing away the fluoride from your tooth paste.
  • Smoking: Quit smoking to reduce the risks of stain formation on the teeth, gingivitis, tooth loss, and in more severe cases mouth cancer.
  • Fluoride: Make sure your toothpaste contains fluoride; it helps strengthen tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay.
  • Toothbrush: You should change your tooth brush no less than once every six months or sooner if it becomes worn so as to keep it clean.
  • Dentist: Visit your dentist as often as they recommend.
  • Eating/Drinking: Wait one hour after eating or drinking anything before brushing in the morning as then that enamel will be softened and you might accidentally brush away tiny particles.
  • Diet: A varied diet that provides vitamins, minerals, and fresh vegetables and fruits can help to minimise gum disease.
  • Weaning: The earlier wean your child off the bottle, the better off they’ll be for preventing problems like dental problems later in life.
  • Children: Supervise your children’s tooth brushing until they are about 7 years old.
