If you want to avoid oral hygiene problems, keeping the mouth and teeth clean is essential. However, many people do suffer with the most common problems like dental cavities, gingivitis, and bad breath. If you do and you live in the Surrey or surrounding area, why not come and see us at Estetica. We will endeavour to solve your concerns as quickly as possible. In the meantime, why not take a look at these six of the best ‘Top Tips’ for maintaining oral hygiene. Or maybe you would like to ask us a question or post a comment in the box below.
1) Brush and Floss Your Teeth Properly
Brushing and flossing are two of the most crucial elements for attacking the causes of bad breath, which is caused by bacteria that live on our teeth and gums. Make sure you brush all tooth surfaces for two to three minutes and floss properly between your teeth for an equal length of time.
2) Clean Your Tongue
While brushing and flossing are crucial first steps, they do not always eliminate bad breath. This is because odour-causing bacteria hide deep within the crevices of the tongue. Cleaning your tongue with a tongue cleaner can remove this layer and much of the bacteria residing on your tongue. Remember to clean near the back of the tongue where most of the bacteria resides, but be careful not to gag yourself.
3) Drink Plenty Water
A dry mouth is the ideal home for odour-causing bacteria. Saliva normally keeps the mouth moist, helping to wash away the food particles bacteria feed on and dissolving odorous volatile sulphur compounds. Without enough saliva, odour-causing bacteria will flourish. By drinking water we stimulate saliva flow, wash away left-over food particles, and moisten the mouth, making our mouths less hospitable to odour-causing bacteria.
4) Use Chlorine Dioxide Mouthwashes
Mouthwashes containing chlorine dioxide are the latest advance against bad breath. Conventional mouthwashes at best only temporarily mask bad breath odour; at worst, they can make the situation worse by drying out the mouth and making it more hospitable to odour-producing bacteria. Chlorine dioxide has been used for years to sanitize water supplies. In these mouthwashes the chlorine dioxide directly attacks the volatile sulphur compounds responsible for bad breath.
5) Chew Sugarless Gum
If you can't brush after a meal or snack, consider chewing sugarless gum. The chewing action helps cleanse the teeth and stimulates the flow of saliva. Saliva in turn further helps to cleanse the mouth and dissolves odorous volatile sulphur compounds.
6) Get a Dental Check-Up at Least Once a Year
A yearly dental check-up is a good idea for all adults. A dentist can recognise potentially damaging problems early and diagnose other problems which cause bad breath including abscesses, periodontal disease, and impacted teeth.
TV Celebrity Jeremy Kyle will perform the official opening of the new premises in Chertsey, Surrey. The new building features state-of-the-art equipment and treatment rooms where patients can receive ground-breaking treatments with the latest technology. Estetica is run by Dr Sina Salimi, an expert in cosmetic dentistry including services such as smile makeovers, tooth whitening, veneers and all porcelain restorations. Dr Salimi, a Dental Phobia Certified dentist, said, “Since opening in 2002, Estetica has offered the very best dental practices and procedures in a very caring and friendly environment. Our aim is to provide the highest quality dental care at an affordable price. We are excited about the launch later this month and the opportunity to open our doors to many potential clients.”
