- Brush your teeth twice a day for 3 minutes each time. If this is a constant battle for you, try setting a timer, or take some time to read up on what happens to your teeth if you don’t – this may motivate you to stay healthy. Your oral care can influence the rest of your body and immune system – it’s important to look after it!

It can happen during the day and whilst you are asleep. It can be caused by a number of things, including stress and anxiety, an abnormal bite or even sleeping disorders.
