Brushing Your Teeth
Did you know that 1 in 4 adults, aged 20 to 64, currently have at least one cavity? (That’s a lot of people!)
One of the best ways to avoid cavities altogether is by visiting your dentist regularly. You can have a strict brushing and flossing regime, but without regular dental hygiene appointments, bacteria and plaque can build up easily. By visiting your dental hygienist, they can remove all the plaque in those hard-to-reach places and give you a fluoride treatment to strengthen your enamel.

How to Brush Your Teeth
To brush your teeth, you will first add toothpaste to your toothbrush. Then, you will brush the fronts and backs of your teeth, as well as along the gum line and your tongue for two minutes. (This will help remove any leftover food particles and plaque from your mouth.)
How to Floss Your Teeth
We recommend that you floss your teeth at least once per day. To floss, you will take a piece of the floss and wrap it around your fingers. You will then move the string gently in between each of your teeth to dislodge food and other particles.
