Brushing techniques
• Brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and floss too
• Brush firmly using small circular motions – not too hard, you don’t want to wear down the enamel on your teeth
• Always use fluoride toothpaste and floss for best results
• Brush your teeth for at least two minutes
• When you’re finished brushing don’t rinse your mouth with water, this washes away the protective fluoride

An apple a day
An apple is like nature’s toothbrush! Eating an apple at the end of a meal helps to cleanse your mouth and remove stains.

Pucker up
Great news! Kissing increases salvia and saliva helps to clean teeth of the bacteria that can lead to cavities. So pucker up!

Use a straw
Drinks such as coffee, tea and red wine can stain teeth, and most of us drink at least some of these daily. By simply using a straw when you’re drinking teeth staining or sugary drinks you can reduce the contact between the liquid and your teeth. Simple and effective.
