Top tips to keeping your mouth in good health between visits when you are at home.
Brush your teeth properly – yes, it’s a no brainer but if you aren’t brushing right it’s almost as bad as not brushing at all. Take your time and take two minutes to do the job. Move your brush in a gental circular motion and don’t forget to scrub your tongue!
Floss – most people forget to floss. Flossing doesn’t just get rid of food stuck between your teeth it also stimulates your gums,, reduces plaque build up and can help reduce inflations.
Use a fluoride toothpaste – if you’re using a tooth whitening paste or one to treat sensitive teeth make sure you choose one that contains fluoride as it not only fights germs but it can also build a protective barrier for your teeth.
Mouthwash – although it’s not essential mouthwash can by useful in many ways. It can lower the acidity in your moth, clean hard to reach places between teeth and remineralise the teeth.
Water – water is pretty essential for live and that includes your oral health. Dentists recommend drinking a glassful after every meal to help wash away some of the acids left over from foods and drinks.
