1. Brush your teeth with the right technique (circular motions angled towards the gums), the right brush (a soft bristle brush, consider a powered brush) and the right pressure (gentle soft) for you, the right frequency (twice a day, morning and before you sleep) and right duration (2 minutes, in front of a mirror so you clean every tooth, every surface). Use a fluoridated toothpaste, speak to your dentist about the right brush that suits your dexterity and teeth and the right toothpaste for your risk category.

2. Floss daily to clean between your teeth where your toothbrush won’t reach. Speak to your dentist about the right type of floss or device to get between your teeth. Avoid abrasive toothpicks. Rinsing or water-sprays aren’t the same as wiping the disease-causing-film that develops on teeth.

3. Have a healthy diet, including drinking lots of Aussie tap water, limit snacks especially acidic and refined surgary foods, & chew sugar-free gum after meals.

4. Visit your dental professional regularly. Having a regular dentist will be like your own personal coach who knows you well. If it’s been a while since you’ve seen a dentist or you feel you may have a concern then schedule that appointment
