Teeth and Gum Care Tips

  • Brush your teeth regularly. Brush at least twice a day and preferably after every meal and snack.

  • Use a fluoride-containing toothpaste. Fluoride can help kill bacteria, as well as make your teeth stronger.

  • Floss at least once a day. Flossing removes plaque and food particles from between teeth and under the gumline, areas your toothbrush can not reach.

  • Visit your dental hygienist regularly for check-ups and cleanings - typically twice a year. This is the key to a healthy mouth.

  • Eat a variety of foods to maintain overall health. Eat fewer foods containing sugars and starches between meals.
