Oral hygiene

A video about good oral hygiene habits 

We believe the instructions on tooth brushing and flossing to be particularly useful.

Alongside flossing, inter-dental brushes are another method of cleaning between teeth. Your dentist or hygienist can advise you about the best methods to keep your mouth healthy. 

A note about mouthwash

Although the video advises mouthwash to be used after brushing, we recommend using mouthwash at a different time to brushing.

Latest guidance advises, to spit the toothpaste out after brushing, as opposed to rinsing with water. This keeps some of the fluoride toothpaste on your teeth for longer. Using a mouthwash straight after brushing, removes this toothpaste, and reduces the effectiveness of fluoride. 

If you have any questions please ask your dentist!
