- Brush your teeth twice a day, spit out excess toothpaste and don't rinse out your mouth - this keeps the fluoride on your teeth for longer to keep them strong!
- Floss or use interdental brushes between your teeth daily – this is best done at night
Use fluoride-based dental products – check recommended guidelines.
Eat a balanced & healthy diet – limiting snacks between meals
Visit the Dentist regularly (try for 2 times a year)
Don’t consume too much sugar in your diet (not only for your teeth but also for your figure!)
Don’t leave a problem unchecked
Don’t give your children sweets or fizzy drinks as snacks
Don’t rush through your cleaning – It should last 2 minutes (that's about the length of a song!)
Don’t clean your teeth too frequently – this can damage your teeth, stick to the recommended twice daily (or after high sugary food as well).
Don't rinse your mouth after brushing - just spit. NHS Dentist, teeth whitening, hygienist, emergency dentist, dental implants, Edinburgh NHS Dentist, facial rejuvenation, straight teeth, Edinburgh, southside dental care, fife, Lothian, penicuik, Scotland
