Toothbrushing is a basic oral hygiene behaviour that removes and controls the build-up of dental plaque.

Dental plaque is a film which contains bacteria that continually forms on tooth surfaces and is a primary risk factor for gingivitis (gum inflammation) which can lead to periodontitis (loss of bone around the teeth.)
By brushing teeth twice a day, for two minutes and using a fluoridated toothpaste is proven to be effective in preventing dental caries/decay.

Did you know?

Only half of all Australian adults and two-thirds of children brush their teeth twice daily
Caregivers should start tooth brushing as soon as a child’s first tooth erupts from around 6 months of age
From 18 months a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste can be used with supervision
Parents should be supervising and assisting in toothbrushing until a child is 8 years old
