Healthy teeth throughout life

Give your teeth a few minutes of attention every day and you can keep them for a lifetime.

Your oral hygiene habits also affect your health in general. There is a connection between diseases in your mouth and other diseases, such as cardiovascular disease. Caring for your teeth is therefore a good investment for the future.

It is important to remove bacterial plaque from your gums and teeth, or it will stick and may cause gum inflammation (gingivitis) and cavities. Both adults and children should brush their teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice a day. Starting in the late teens, you also need to clean between your teeth every day.

Depending on your circumstances, your teeth may need some extra care. Here in our Tips & Advice section you can read more about common oral health topics and get advice for your special oral hygiene needs. Choose your topic from the menu.
