Looking after your teeth

Taking care of your general health and your mouth is the key to making the most of your smile.

Brushing your teeth twice a day (last thing at night before you go to bed and on one other occasion) with fluoride toothpaste and having regular check-ups with a dentist can help to keep your teeth healthy. Diet, smoking and drinking alcohol also have an effect on dental health.

Mencap made the video on this page, which shows you what happens at the dentist.

If you don't have a dentist, you can search for one who is near to you by using the external link called "Find a dentist"on this page.
