Oral hygiene is essential for good oral health. It is important to maintain a good oral hygiene regime to reduce your risk of suffering from oral diseases, such as gum disease and dental decay.
Oral health has a bearing on general health, as well as your appearance and it is incredibly important to look after your teeth and gums; this is not just to ensure that your teeth look healthy and you feel confident when you smile but also to decrease your risk of developing potentially serious health conditions. A number of studies have linked poor oral health to an increased risk of heart disease, strokes and diabetes, so oral hygiene is perhaps even more important that ever before.

Oral hygiene tips
We recommend brushing twice a day for a minimum of 2 minutes each time using fluoride toothpaste and flossing on a regular basis. We also advise avoiding snacking on sugary or acidic foods and drinks between meals and ensuring that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a routine check-up.
