The new year is also a good time for getting rid of bad habits such as keeping toothbrushes for too long, the expert said, pointing out that they should be changed every three months.

"Preventative dental care is important for people of all ages, particularly young people, and is the key to long-term dental health," Dr Davis commented.

He also recommended seeing a dentist regularly to stop little problems becoming big ones and asking about professional teeth whitening rather than using at-home kits.
