Oral Health

In PSED we learnt about good practice with regard to our oral hygiene and that keeping our teeth and gums clean can contribute to good health.


Using display teeth Miss Wilkinson showed us how to brush our teeth. Here are the top tips:

  • Use circular movements and try to concentrate on one section at a time.
  • Don’t forget to brush gently behind the teeth and onto the gums.
  • Spit out after brushing and do not rinse, so that the toothpaste stays on your teeth longer.
  • Brush your teeth in the morning and just before you go to bed.


We used the display teeth, toothpaste and toothbrushes to practice the tooth brushing technique.
