Check these out and maybe even download this blog and post it where you’ll always be able to tick these measures off.
- Knowing how to brush your teeth properly is half the battle when it comes to keeping your beautiful smile. Lots of people think brushing hard against the gums and the enamel is good for both but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the harder you push with the toothbrush, the more you wear away the enamel on your teeth and scrape on your gums. The best way to brush your teeth is with gentle even strokes and a medium to soft bristle toothbrush.
- The toothbrush is the most important tool in your arsenal against plaque. That’s why we suggest that you change yours out every three months whether you need a new one or not. Of course, it’s a good idea to head for the local pharmacy to grab a new one at the first sign of wear and tear.
- Using an antibacterial mouth wash is another good idea and a top suggestion from our Bedok general dentistry professionals. It’s very important to us to make sure that each and every one of our clients gets a specialized oral health care routine that suits them specifically.
As long as we are on the subject of good oral health, we’d like to stress that it’s another good idea to brush your tongue. That’s another place where bacteria likes to grow and it’s a good idea to make sure your oral health care efforts extend to that part of your mouth too.
Diet is another part of an excellent oral health care regime. The healthier foods like apples and other types of fruit are actually high in vitamins as well. It’s always a good idea when you’re putting your teeth first to avoid food that is laden with sugar.
We are always here to help you with preventative oral hygiene tips that make a difference. Remember the experts at Nuffield Dental are committed to every member of your family and their beautiful bright smiles.
