Get a Lifelong Healthy Smile with These 7 Simple Tips

Looking after you smile doesn’t have to be complicated. Establishing a simple dental care routine and visiting your dentist for treatments and checkups will keep your teeth and gums in the very best of health. You can achieve a lifelong healthy smile just by following our 7 simple tips.

1. 6 Month Smile

Crooked teeth can negatively impact your dental health. If you’re considering straightening your smile, our 6 month smile treatment may be just right for you! In just six months smiles in London can be transformed with our clear adult braces, leaving our patients with more health and confidence than ever before.

2. Keep Up with Regular Dental Appointments

It’s always important to attend your dental checkups. Your dentist will examine your mouth, teeth and gums and notice any issues you may have not been aware of. During your checkup your dentist will also screen for cancer, gum disease and other dental issues.

3. Floss!

Remove any debris lurking in between your teeth by flossing at least once a day. Floss prevents gum disease by reaching places your toothbrush can’t quite manage. As you first begin to start flossing regularly, your gums may bleed. But don’t worry - all bleeding will stop as your gums become healthier.

4. Eat Healthy

Did you know the foods you eat directly impact your dental health? Fruits and veggies play an important role in healthy teeth and gums. These crunchy natural foods act as an abrasive and can quickly get rid of unwanted plaque on your teeth. Snacking on apples or carrot sticks is a perfect way to keep your teeth clean throughout the day.

5. Stay Hydrated

Drink enough water each day and your whole body will thank you - particularly your teeth! Sipping on water keeps your breath fresh and washes debris from your teeth. Get into the habit of carrying around a bottle of water and refill it as you go.

6. Check for Gum Disease

The condition of your gums reflects your overall dental health. Red, sore or swollen gums are caused by a buildup of plaque and can worsen if left untreated. Many people can have early stages of gum disease without even realising it, so it’s important to visit your private dentist for regular checkups and preventative treatment.

7. Brush

Set aside a good three minutes to brush your teeth at least twice a day. Take care to thoroughly brush away plaque and debris, so you leave nothing behind but a pearly white smile!
