Maintaining good oral hygiene routine is not really a complicated business. It is mostly about following the advice that you get from your dentist so that you have a healthy set of teeth and gums. The main aim of the maintenance of oral hygiene is to try and minimise the amount of plaque that is in your mouth. This is because plaque damages teeth and gums, causing teeth to decay and gums to become inflamed and diseased.
The most important thing to do is to brush your teeth. Use a brush with firm bristles that have not been worn down or become dirty. Apply a pea sized amount of fluoride enriched tooth paste and brush every corner of your mouth, including the inside of your teeth. Once you have done this, don’t forget to floss. By pulling dental floss between your teeth you are removing the plaque which can linger there, out of the reach of the bristles on your tooth brush.
Along with this, you should go and visit your Sutton dentist every six months so that your mouth can be checked over. Preventive dentistry is far more preferable than having to undergo what could be costly and invasive treatment for a condition that has begun to develop such as gum disease or dental decay. As part of this you should pursue a generally healthy lifestyle, eating a balanced diet and avoid activities such as smoking tobacco and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol.
Having excellent oral hygiene means that you will be able to eat and drink in comfort. Not only that, you will be able to smile with confidence, knowing that your teeth look strong and healthy. If you follow the simple advice set out above then you won’t even have to think about the health of your teeth and gums.Back to Blog
