  • Brushing and flossing your teeth stops the build-up of plaque, which is the primary cause of tooth decay. It also reduces the chances of developing cavities and gum disease.
  • Brush your teeth twice per day, especially before bed, and floss once per day. You should also visit your dentist twice per year.
  • Brush gently in a circular motion, use fluoride toothpaste and don’t forget to brush or scrape your tongue.
