Did you know only 50% of Australian adults brush their teeth twice a day? And nearly 40% never floss or clean in between their teeth?
Dental Health Week is a national awareness week run by the Australian Dental Association to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene. It is not only your teeth that need to be kept clean, but your whole mouth. When was the last time you replaced your toothbrush? More than three months ago? If it has been more than three months since your last new brush, or the bristles are bent every which-way, it sounds like you need a new tooth brush! Bent bristles cannot clean your teeth effectively, leaving your teeth with colonies of bacteria where there should be sparkling pearly whites.
