Prevention of tooth decay in children aged from 7 years and young adults

All children and young adults

• Brush twice daily
• Brush last thing at night and on one other occasion (usually first thing in the morning)
• Use fluoridated toothpaste (1,350 ppm fluoride or above)
• Spit out after brushing and do not rinse
• The frequency and amount of sugary food and drinks should be reduced and, when consumed, limited to mealtimes.  Sugars should not be consumed more than four times per day

Those giving concern (eg those likely to develop tooth decay, those undergoing orthodontic treatment (braces), those with special needs)

Advice: All the above, plus:
• Use a fluoride mouthrinse daily (0.05% NaF) at a different time to brushing
• Consider using an oscillating/rotating powertoothbrush
