Expert tips to mind your teeth to celebrate World Smile Day.

It's World Smile Day on 7th October and to celebrate the day, Jordan Oral Care have shared their top tips for your family.

Change your toothbrush with the seasons

Your toothbrush should be changed 4 times a year, so to help you remember, why not change your toothbrush with the seasons! This will help keep your toothbrush from gathering unwanted bacteria and ensure a thorough clean. Why not try one of Jordan’s Individual Clean Adult toothbrushes (€3.20/£2.15) which has a design to suit everyone’s mouth and bathroom décor.

Remember to brush before you sleep

It's no secret that brushing teeth properly is extremely beneficial. Brushing before bed gets rid of the germs and plaque that accumulate throughout the day.

Don't forget to clean your tongue

Plague can also build up on your tongue. Not only can this lead to bad mouth odour, but it can lead to other oral health problems. It is pivotal to clean your tongue.

Use a fluoride toothpaste

As claimed by leading dentists, fluoride is a leading defence against tooth decay. It works by fighting germs that can lead to decay.

Try Jordan’s Green Clean Adult Gentle Whitening toothpaste (€3.75/£2.65) which contains fluoride and xylitol to give you the best protection against cavities, while being 100% Vegan and containing 98% naturally sourced ingredients it had the environment in mind.

Ensure your child is using the correct toothbrush for their age

Small mouths require small toothbrushes, with small and soft bristles. In addition, keep in mind that small children cannot spit, so it is important to use the recommended amount of toothpaste.

Jordan has a clear Step by Step range of toothbrushes specially designed with the child’s need at that age.
