Oral health tips

Posted in: Dentistry, by thecourtyardclinic, on 2nd July 2010 | Comments Off on Oral health tips

Some simple tips for keeping your mouth in tip-top order….

  • Brush your teeth twice a day
  • Use fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss daily or use interdental brushes for those hard to reach areas
  • Change your toothbrush at least every three months
  • Chew sugar free gum after meals to neutralise the harmful acid that can cause plaque and tooth decay
  • Try eating sugar-free yoghurt, as this lowers the levels of hydrogen sulphide, the major cause of bad breath
  • Eat plenty of vitamin C in the form of citrus fruit – this promotes wound healing and can help fight gum disease
  • Eating iron-rich foods can help improve the condition of gum tissue
  • After eating sugary or acidic foods, trying eating a small amount of cheese to counteract the effects of plaque acid
  • Quit smoking and limit your alcohol consumption to reduce your chances of contracting mouth cancer
  • Visit your dentist regularly for check ups and keep up to date with your hygiene treatment

It is one of the first things we notice when we meet someone for the first time, so it’s worth paying as much attention to your smile as you do to other aspects of your appearance.

We are an experienced dental team and are proud to deliver excellence, innovation and results that are second to none, using state of the art techniques in a practice dedicated to your comfort, wellbeing and most importantly, your smile.
