Brush last thing at night and at least one other time during the day with a fluoride toothpaste.
Finding a Dentist
Everyone should be able to access good-quality NHS dental services. There is no need to register with a dentist in the same way as with a GP because you are not bound to a catchment area. Simply find a dental practice that’s convenient for you, whether it’s near your home or work, and phone them to see if there are any appointments available.
If you do not have a regular dental practice or are new to the area, you can search for an NHS dentist near you on the NHS Choices website.
The leaflet below explains how to find an NHS dentist, what treatment you can expect and how much it will cost from 1 April 2017.
Brush DJ is an award-winning, NHS approved, free toothbrush timer app that plays two minutes of music taken from the user’s device to encourage brushing for an effective length of time. The app also allows users to set reminders to brush twice a day, floss, use a mouth rinse and when to see their dentist or hygienist. For more information and to download the app visit Brush DJ
