How to Brush Your Way to Better Health

Brushing your teeth the proper way is important for your oral and overall health. We all know that brushing your teeth
makes them look whiter and feel cleaner, but brushing them correctly helps prevent toothaches, bleeding gums and other
oral health issues which can also potentially affect your general health.

Brushing for just two minutes, twice a day, removes plaque from your teeth. If left to build up, plaque can cause bad breath,
yellow teeth and ultimately lead to cavities and gingivitis or periodontitis which compromise the health of your gums
and teeth. The best way to remove plaque is to combine effective toothbrushing with interdental cleaning and rinsing.

Want to perfect your toothbrushing technique and care for your oral and general health? Watch our video below
and follow our tips for a healthy mouth, smile and body!
While the basics of oral care can benefit everyone, you should
visit your oral health practitioner twice a year for personalised care and a professional clean.
