Here are a few bitsize tips from our dental team to help you look after your teeth:
Brush twice daily, once in the morning and then before bed time. If you want to use mouthwash we recommend a thorough rinse after lunch.
Leave the toothpaste in your mouth after brushing and avoid rinsing your mouth out with water. Flouride in toothpaste helps to protect your teeth and stengthens the enamel.
Clean between your teeth. We recommend daily flossing, or if you find that too tricky then try interdental brushes (tepes), our dentists and hygienists can show you which size to use and how to use them effectively.
Reduce the frequency of sugar. Sugar causes dental decay and excessive plaque leading to gum disease. Be aware of ‘hidden’ sugars. Drinks such as fruit smoothies can contain high levels of natural sugars.
Stop smoking. Smoking causes mutiple problems from bad breath and staining of teeth, to tooth loss and oral cancer.
Come and visit us regularly. We can help you maintain your healthy teeth and gums. Regular visits allow us to spot problems early and prevent them from progressing.
