Claire from South Yarra Dental joined us for a session on caring for your teeth and gums. She asked us about how we care for our teeth and some Possums had sound advice and personal stories - “You have to brush your teeth twice a day” “My brother has lost a tooth” are some examples. Claire advised us that the very best way to brush your teeth is to brush up and down and in circles (not side to side as some may assume!). She showed us on Charlie the crocodile and discussed the importance of using the right way to care for your teeth and gums. Claire talked about what is needed to make your teeth strong. We practised good technique on Charlie and all the children were given the chance to have their teeth checked with a report sent home!
