Brush your teeth for at least two minutes, twice a day, with fluoride toothpaste.

Use a soft-bristled toothbrush with small head and flexible neck. Clean teeth systematically, holding the toothbrush at gumline at a 45-degree angle.

Don’t press too hard – you may damage gums and tooth enamel.

Replace your toothbrush every three months.

Make daily flossing part of your oral hygiene regime.

Ask your dentist to demonstrate the correct flossing technique, and whether interdental brushes or floss holders will help your flossing.

Children should also start flossing as soon as they have two teeth that touch.
