Healthy Teeth and Gums



  • Use an antiseptic mouthwash each day to help prevent gum disease. In particular, for those who are unable to use a toothbrush, regular rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash will help to clean the teeth.

  • Clean your tongue after cleaning your teeth. You can do this with a toothbrush. You can also buy a special plastic tongue scraper from pharmacies.

  • If you smoke, you should aim to stop smoking. Smoking is a major risk factor for developing gum disease.

  • Eat a well balanced healthy diet. In particular, you should limit the amount of sugary foods and drinks that you have.

  • Chew sugar free gum after each meal. Chewing gum increases the flow of saliva. Saliva helps to ‘flush’ the mouth to help clear any debris remaining from the meal.
