Keeping your mouth healthy

  • Wash your hands for about 20 secs before caring for your teeth or the teeth of others
  • Brush at least two times per day for two minutes on waking and immediately before bed. For more efficient brushing use an electric brush. Remember to brush your tongue
  • Floss twice a day, whenever you brush

Caring for your child’s teeth

  • Your infant-use a soft cloth or a finger brush twice daily. No bottle at bedtime
  • Your toddler-Use an age appropriate toothbrush with a pea sized drop of toothpaste. No bottle at bedtime. Supervise your child’s brushing habits. Introduce him/her to flossing
  • Your young adult-reinforce your child’s oral hygiene practices.

Toothbrush care

  • Store your toothbrush in a clean, dry place away from bathroom aerosols.
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3 months or when it is visibly worn or frayed.
  • If you or a family member is ill, use a new toothbrush for the duration of the illness, and keep it separate from other toothbrushes in the household. Replace it when healthy once again.

Denture Care

  • Just like your natural teeth, your dentures can accumulate plaque, stain and calculus
  • Remove and rinse dentures after eating.
  • Dentures should be taken out before bedtime to help keep your gums healthy.
  • Denture kits have a soft denture brush and non-abrasive cleaning tablets to clean dentures overnight. This overnight soaking will help to remove the biofilm, bacteria and fungi that can potentially do harm to your teeth and gums.
  • Rinse dentures thoroughly before placing dentures in your mouth
