Health Care Advice

Brush at least twice a day.

The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums

Use fluoridated toothpaste

Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.

Limit sugary foods

Bacteria in dental plaque change sugars into acids.
