Brits have been advised about the oral health regimes they should take up to help them keep their teeth in perfect health for their whole lives.
Daily gentle brushing with a soft-bristled tooth brush could help people avoid trips to the emergency dentists, according to Dahlia McDaniel, a dental health expert.
In addition, he advised flossing and regular trips to the dentist for check-ups, as failing to take good care of teeth can lead to a person developing cavities, periodontal disease or gingivitis.
He noted: "The dentist views stagnated areas better than we can and removes calculus (tartar), which we cannot do effectively at home."
Elsewhere, the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF) recently gave its backing to plans to implement a ban on cigarette machines across the UK.
The organisation noted that by taking these machines out of public areas, the government is sending a strong message about oral health and the BDHF hopes the move will help to reduce mouth cancer rates across the country.
