Looking after your teeth requires the following  five basic rules and less than five minutes of your time a day!

1- Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes. Remember to clean all the surfaces of your teeth and clean your gums and tongue.

2- Use a fluoride toothpaste.

3- Floss your teeth, or use inter-dental brushes every day.

4- Eat a wide variety of food and avoid sugary food and drinks in between meals

5- Visit your dentist regularly. Prevention is the key to healthy teeth.
