Taking care of your teeth

Taking care of teeth

Daily care, along with a healthy diet and regular visits to your dental practice, will keep your smile in top condition.

Teeth have a huge influence on your appearance and overall health. Keep them clean, white and healthy and you have a wonderful asset. Neglect them and your appearance and health both suffer. 

Adults should follow the mouth mantra of ‘brush, floss, scrape' for good oral care. Choose a soft toothbrush that fits your mouth, so you can reach to the back of the last molar easily. Brush your teeth at least two times a day. Floss between your teeth once a day. And scrape your tongue daily to remove debris and bacteria.

Visit your local Life Pharmacy to discuss the toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss and tooth scraper that are right for you.
