Top Tips for Oral Health


  • As soon as a tooth appears, you should start cleaning it. Children should start learning to brush from two years old.
  • Sealants can protect against decay in the back permanent teeth (usually appear around six years of age)
  • Toothbrushes should be changed three or four times a year
  • Brush twice daily and floss once daily
  • Rinse or chew gum after meals
  • Use a mouth guard when playing sports
  • Have a regular dental examination (oral health check) at your dentist
  • Avoid (or at least minimise) sugary drinks and foods


If you pay full PRSI then you are entitled to a free oral health examination every year and the dental surgery don’t charge for oral health examinations of children under the age of 12.
