October is Dental Hygiene Month! This is the perfect time to remember the importance of taking care of your dental hygiene. With the right approach and routine, you can improve your oral health, as well as achieving a brighter, more confident smile.
To celebrate, we are currently offering two dental hygienist appointments for the price of one!
Here, we’ll share some tips on how to keep your smile healthy and sparkling bright. Plus, find out more about our limited time offer.
How to maintain good dental hygiene
To keep your teeth and gums healthy, there are some basic tips that will ensure your teeth are kept in the best possible condition between your hygienist appointments. These are as follows:
Brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
Brushing your teeth twice a day, for approximately 2 minutes with a fluoride toothpaste is the best first step to ensure good dental hygiene. By regularly removing the plaque that builds up on the teeth, you can help prevent gum disease. This can lead to tooth loss, or more serious health issues if left untreated.
Floss your teeth
Flossing your teeth before brushing is an effective way to remove food debris and bacteria from hard to reach gaps between the teeth. There is research showing that interdental brushes can be more effective at plaque removal than floss. Of course, your dental hygienist can check your flossing technique or can make recommendations for interdental brushes if required.
Reduce your sugar intake
By reducing your sugar intake, you can protect the enamel on your teeth from eroding, leading to tooth decay. Avoid fizzy drinks and sweets, and choose healthy snack options.
Visit your dentist
Keeping on top of your routine dental appointments will help to keep your teeth in the best condition while detecting any issues early on. With regular dental hygienist appointments, we can remove any plaque debris, and give you tips for maintaining your teeth and gum health.
