Dental hygiene

Frequency

Tooth brushing is advised after each meal.

Tooth brushing before bedtime is the most important time for brushing, in order to avoid leaving food remains in the mouth overnight.

If no toothbrush is available on some occasion, gargling with water or the eating of fruit (e.g., an apple) or a hard vegetable (e.g., a carrot) may suffice.
