Your teeth are the only part of the body that do not have the ability to repair themselves so investing time and effort in looking after your teeth can have lasting effects for your future oral health. It is important that you put in place an effective oral hygiene routine. This means brushing your teeth at least twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste and using interdental cleaning aids, such as brushes or floss, daily. You can also look at lifestyle factors that can affect your oral health, these include smoking, a high sugar diet or a diet high in acids.
