Key tips on oral hygiene

In order to keep your smile in top condition, we recommend:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice a day, with toothpaste containing fluoride for a minimum period of two minutes
  • Flossing or using other interdental cleaning aids (e.g. interdental brushes, super floss, irrigation devices, etc.) daily to remove food particles and plaque from in-between the teeth and along the gum line
  • Bacteria can also build up on your tongue, so don’t forget to brush this, too!
  • Eating a balanced diet with limited sugary and acidic foods and drinks
  • Visiting the dentist regularly for routine check-ups and regular hygienist visits
  • Quitting smoking, vaping or using tobacco products, which can cause gum disease, oral cancer and other health problems
