  • Make sure to clean your teeth at least twice a day morning and one other time. Most people choose to do this before bedtime.
  • Use a peasize amount of toothpaste.
  • Make sure you brush properly for about two minutes and dont forget to brush your back teeth.
  • After brushing… spit don’t rinse!
  • You should visit your Dentist every 6 months and they will check the health of your teeth.

Try not to:

  • eat too many sugary foods as too much sugar is bad for your teeth
  • drink sugary fizzy drinks as they are bad for your teeth, water is a better choice.
  • eat sweets, if you do, try to have them at meal times.
  • eat sticky sweets that can stick to your teeth for a long time.
