What’s the best way to clean my teeth?

We recommend using an electric toothbrush, however if you prefer to brush manually use a medium brush; with a small head, as it is easier to clean hard to reach places. We also recommend renewing your brush at least every 3 months. Brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day with a medium brush and Fluoride toothpaste. Replace the brush when the bristles get out of shape. Put the bristles at the join between teeth and gums, pointing towards the gums, and brush using short circular movements. Brush all around every tooth, carefully making sure you can feel the brush on your gums.

Don’t use too much force – give your teeth and gums a gentle scrub. Thorough brushing takes two or three minutes; why not time yourself? After brushing, you should spit out the toothpaste – but do not rinse, as this lessens the effect of the fluoride. Small children should only use a small, pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. They cannot brush properly until they are at least six or seven, so an adult should help them brush their teeth. One way is to stand behind the child and tilt their head back so all the teeth can be seen and reached. We recommend you spend between two and three minutes cleaning your teeth, followed by flossing and then mouth wash.
