How often should I brush my teeth? What about flossing?

You should brush your teeth when you get up and just before going to sleep. If possible, it is advisable to brush them after lunch.

There needs to be a minimum brushing time established to ensure we brush effectively and correctly. A minute and a half is enough for our teeth to be completely clean.

You need to check the state of the bristles on your toothbrush. Those in a bad state will mean your brushing is not as effective as it should be. You are advised to change your toothbrush every 3 months.

Dental floss should be used after every brushing, given food debris accumulates on AND between the teeth.

Using dental floss requires practice and at first may seem a little frustrating. Once you have learned to use it properly, with the help of a dentist and perseverance, it can be used quickly and simply.
