By now we all know that brushing our teeth twice daily is only half the job.

Whether you’re manually brushing or using an electric brush, plaque is still able to stick around if you don’t follow thorough oral hygiene practices. Brand new research has also revealedt hat good oral hygiene and regular dental care are the most important ways to reduce the risk of a heart infection called infective endocarditis, which is caused by bacteria in the mouth.

How to use

The Dental Scaler: Use weekly. Hold the tool so that the top curve is flat against the tooth. Gently pull away from the gum line towards the biting edge of each tooth.

The Dental Pick: Use weekly. Place the pick at the gum line between the teeth and gently pull away from the gum to remove food.

The Tongue Cleaner: Can be used as and when needed, preferably daily after brushing your teeth. Place The Tongue Cleaner on the back of your tongue and pull forward, lightly skimming the surface of your tongue. Like your toothbrush, you should replace your tongue cleaner every three months!
