Healthy Smiles

Here is some useful advice for everyone;

Brush your teeth for 2 minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.

Spit out any excess toothpaste, do not rinse your mouth as this will leave a small but protective residue of toothpaste.

Clean once a day (at least) the spaces between your teeth using floss or interdental brushes. Your dentist can advise what’s best for you.

Keep sugary foods and snacks to a minimum, preferably eaten at meal times. It is the frequency and length of time that sugar contacts your teeth that cause decay. I.e. one packet of sweets eaten all at once is better than spreading them out over an afternoon

Chew sugar-free gum. This increases the flow of saliva protecting teeth and gums against harmful bacteria and acid.

Limit your intake of fizzy drinks, fruit juice and smoothies. All are very acidic which can dissolve healthy enamel over time and cause decay.

Water is healthy and perfectly safe for your teeth.

Help your children with daily brushing until about 6 years of age.
