Are you trying to get even whiter teeth? Want to make sure you maintain healthy teeth? We asked Swissdent’s Alex Galli for some advice about healthy teeth, gums and how to get them even whiter.
Take a look at what Alex had to say:
What do you feel people look for now in a toothpaste?
They look for additional benefits instead of simple anti cavity protection. Taste, long lasting freshness, whitening effect and impact on health of gums and teeth
How long should you brush your teeth for?
At least 2 minutes until you feel with your tongue smooth surface on your teeth
How long before you should change your toothbrush?
Healthy people every 3 months or when bristles are not in shape anymore. After infection disease (flu etc.) we recommend also to change the toothbrush.

It prolongs or accelerates the action of the toothpaste. It is proven that Swissdent Extreme Mouthwash accelerates the whitening effect.

What foods damage your teeth badly?
Food with aggressive acids like pineapple, strawberries, berries or vinegar.
