Good dental hygiene habits will prevent future, more serious issues, such as decay or tooth loss.
Getting into the habit of practicing good dental hygiene as part of your daily routine, will mean you are on top of your oral health and your risk of issues in the future will be reduced.
Regularly removing plaque and keeping an eye on your diet will keep your mouth in good health at home. You should also be seeing your dentist for check-ups when recommended.
How to keep your teeth healthy
- Brush your teeth for two minutes, twice a day.
- Floss between teeth which are close together and use an interdental brush for larger gaps.
- Make your lifestyle more teeth-friendly, by cutting down on sugar, not smoking and eating a balanced diet.
- Regular dental check-ups, for adults and children, will encourage you to keep on top of your dental hygiene.
