You should thoroughly remove plaque from your teeth (and dentures if you wear them) at least twice a day.

You need a small headed medium texture toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste. We sell recommended manual and electric toothbrushes at Tavistock Drive Dental Care.

To clean between your teeth use interdental brushes, tape or floss at least once every day. Your dentist or hygienist will recommend the best product to suit you.

Electric Toothbrushes are very effective for removing plaque and are also ideal for people who find it difficult to grip a manual toothbrush handle.

Cut down on how often you have sugary food and drinks and try to have these as part of your meal, rather than snacking

To check how effectively you are removing plaque from your teeth use a Disclosing Tablet after you usual brushing. This will stain any remaining plaque with a harmless dye showing you any areas which need closer attention.

A further brushing will remove the stained plaque.

Visit your dentist and hygienist regularly for advice and maintenance care.
