Did you know that dental care can be fast and easy? Here we share 8 top tips for a brighter, whiter smile… ?
1. Visit Your Dentist Regularly
Book regular checkups and teeth cleanings to prevent and treat any problems you might have/get.
2. Brush Your Teeth Regularly
Brush at least twice a day; morning and night. Brushing cleans your teeth, removes any built-up plaque, massages the gums, prevents gum disease and freshens your breath.
3. Replace Your Toothbrush Every Three Months
Bristles become worn over time, which reduces their cleaning ability, so we recommend replacing your toothbrush every three months.
4. Use a Soft Touch with a Soft-Bristled Brush
Use gentle, light pressure and choose a soft-bristled brush to avoid eroding the delicate tooth enamel and causing gums to recede.
5. Use Floss & Mouthwash
Brushing is essential, but you can further improve your dental health but using floss and mouth rinse every day too.
6. Rinse or Brush After Your Eat
If you can’t brush after a meal, rinse your mouth with water to remove the excess food debris that clings to teeth and causes decay.
7. Reduce Your Sugar Intake
Sugars feed dental decay and cause many dental care problems. Try to reduce your sugar intake to improve your dental health.
