A preventative approach to oral health is by far the most effective way to stay decay and infection free. 1| Brush your teeth properly, twice a day.
Here are 10 ways you can preserve your smile:
2| Brush well. Set a timer if you have to, but brushing should take at least two minutes each time.
3| Floss once a day (try to build up to daily flossing if you don’t currently floss at all).
4| Avoid acidic drinks like soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices.
5| Limit sugary foods (everything you put in your mouth can affect your overall oral health).
6| Protect your teeth from injury with a well-fitted mouthguard when playing contact sports. Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food.
7| Quit smoking. Aside from turning your teeth yellow, smoking also fosters bacteria that can cause gum disease, and can lead to oral cancer (amongst others).
8| Try to avoid grinding and clenching your teeth. If you have trouble with this (when you are awake or asleep) find out how we can help.
9| Chew gum. Yes, everything you hear on TV is true! As long as it’s sugar-free, chewing gum increases saliva flow which helps to neutralise acid and prevent plaque from building up on teeth. However, severe teeth grinders/clenchers may experience pain or discomfort from this.
10| Visit your dentist often enough to stay on top of your dental health. Your dentist can advise you on how often you should book in.
