Whenever it comes to looking after ourselves in Bristol, we should always try to get into some form of routine so that it becomes automatic and that mind-set should also be the template for how we look after our teeth too. The problems such as plaque, gum disease and eventually tooth loss are borne out of bacteria being able to ply its ugly trade in the mouth; this comes as a direct consequence of poor oral hygiene on a daily basis- after all, it only takes 24 hours for bacteria to get its claws in. There are enough products on the market today to do the job required to keep your mouths healthy so there is no real excuse why you shouldn’t be brushing your teeth with a suitable brush and toothpaste at least twice a day- routine remember? Then there are a great range of back-up products to help; dental flosses and small inter-dental brushes are great for getting right into the nooks and crannies where normal toothbrushes cant. This can be also backed up by some excellent mouthwashes on the market designed to cater for all problems in the mouth. Herbal products are very popular too these days and can only help in the fight to look after your teeth: marry all of these together with regular outings to the dentist and there is no reason at all why you hold onto your teeth forever.
