What is the best way to care for my teeth at home?

What is the best way to care for my teeth at home?

  1. Brush twice a day, two minutes each time, with a soft toothbrush.  Brush in the morning and at night time before bed.  The brushing at night before bed is very important.
  2. Better still use an Oral B electric toothbrush, such as Triumph, which has a timer and pressure sensor, or at least one that is a part of the Professional Care range.
  3. Change your toothbrush or toothbrush head at least every 3 months.
  4. Floss every night.  Always floss the teeth you want to keep before you go to sleep! Use interdental brushes or floss sticks if you find it difficult to floss.
  5. Mouthrinses are generally not needed.
  6. Clinpro Tooth Creme is best in place of normal toothpaste, for those who need greater protection against decay.
  7. For sensitivity use a sensitive toothpaste, such as Sensodyne, as well as Tooth Mousse Plus, after brushing at night time
  8. See the dentist and dental hygienist every 6 months for preventive care.
