Bath keeps on top of their Oral Hygiene

361951_blogLooking after the health of your teeth is essential to ward off common problems including cavities, dental decay and gum disease. At Clifton Dental of Bristol, we make sure all our patients know the right way to brush and floss teeth as well as give advice in regards to the right dental equipment to use. To stop dental problems occurring in Bath, it is necessary to brush teeth in the morning and in the evening before it is time for bed. If teeth are not thoroughly cleaned every day tarter can start to build up and bacteria can develop. One of the first signs of lack of oral hygiene is bleeding gums. Many patients have come to us complaining that they see blood when they brush their teeth. This is one of the first signs of gum disease and is caused by lack of cleaning. If gums are left like this, over time it can cause more serious issues including tooth loss and infections in the pulp of the tooth. Keeping on top of oral hygiene means that less money and time will need to be spent in the future on tooth restoration treatment, it is hard to put a price on a nice, healthy smile!

Chepstow celebrates Flossing and Brushing twice a day

357249_blogWhen it comes to oral hygiene, it’s really easy to brush and floss your way to good oral health. The most common dental diseases, tooth decay and gum disease, are completely preventable and devoting five minutes a day to your mouth will make a massive difference. We recommend brushing your teeth twice a day for at least 2 minutes each time and flossing on a regular basis, to keep your mouth clean and free from harmful bacteria and plaque. When you brush, you remove bacteria and food debris from your teeth and tongue and this helps to prevent the formation of plaque. Plaque is a colourless film, which sticks and clings to the gum line and teeth and causes irritation to the gums and damage to the tooth enamel. Brushing removes plaque and drastically reduces the risk of gum disease, decay, bad breath, oral infections and staining. Flossing is also really important because it can be difficult to cover all areas of your mouth when you brush and flossing tackles the areas that are commonly missed, such as the gum line and the gaps between the teeth. Using fluoride toothpaste is also beneficial because fluoride helps to strengthen the enamel. At Clifton Dental of Bristol we also recommend regular dental checks and dental hygiene sessions, which provide a very deep clean and will leave the teeth feeling smooth and looking sparkly and bright. If you have any questions about oral hygiene, we will be happy to help.

The importance of brushing each day in Swindon

If you have got to a certain age of your life, and been through the trials and tribulations of many dental treatments, it should have dawned on you by now the importance of brushing your teeth at least twice a day. Just doing this simple operation after every meal will keep bacteria from building up on the surfaces of your teeth and prevent tooth decay from breaking out. However, you need to ensure that you continue to do this right and get the right brush to do the job. It is easy to get complacent about brushing your teeth, but as your teeth change with time, so then should the way you brush them.

Every one of you should know the values of brushing your teeth well: this basic, yet valuable procedure each day ensures that you remove sticky bacteria from the surfaces of your teeth and hopefully prevent plaque from getting a hold in your mouth. However, for all the good brushing does, it is often required that you to go the extra mile in order to give your teeth and gums a thorough clean.

Super Scaling and prim Polishing in Bath

Many people may like to think that they have got oral hygiene down to a fine art and even consider that they can avoid going to see the dentist from time to time; if you are one of these people, then you are being wildly stupid. You may consider that just because you have bought the best gear, looking after your teeth is a foregone conclusion. But avoiding the dentist can be very dangerous to your oral health, as it only takes 24 hours before bacteria in the mouth will start to mess with the surfaces of your teeth. If this goes on, the bacteria will also start to get below the gum-line and cause infection and disease, and it’s a place that even the best gadgets can’t get to. When you go to see your dentist an x-ray or a probe will highlight any problems going on below the gums and if so, your dentist can give you a scale to remove anything down there; in affect, this is a deep clean and it will keep your teeth free from bacteria. This treatment is also backed up with a polish; if the teeth are highly smooth, it makes it very hard for sticky film to cling to, as well as leaving your teeth feeling and looking fresh. In fact, your dentist can do this for you anyway whenever you visit. For more on this cute little treatment and other issues concerning cleaning your teeth, give Clifton Dental a call; they are based in Bristol but they serve the bath area as well.

Flossing with perfection in Chepstow

It seems odd to think that a small spool of floss can help you keep your teeth in your mouth and help to protect the health of your body throughout, but by simply flossing your teeth after a meal, you can prevent many future problems from occurring. Brushing is simply just not enough and also, too big and clumsy to get between the teeth and around the gums. Everyone’s teeth are different, which is why floss comes in various thicknesses, but once you have settled on one that suits you, then it is time to learn how to use it. It is a little tricky at first, so you’ll need to practise until you have got it right. Once you have eaten, get hold of your floss and then stand in front of the mirror; wind the floss between your hands and then gently work it between your teeth. You will soon see how to remove any residue of food left behind, but keep doing this until you can do it without the mirror. This importance of getting this right is imperative for your oral hygiene: food will cause bacteria and acids to start attacking the surfaces of your teeth and soon, plaque will set in; from this, decay will start and ruin your teeth, whilst you run the gauntlet of gum disease breaking out- which can infect the organs of your body. If you want to know more about flossing and others things concerning your dental hygiene, pick up the phone and talk to Clifton Dental in Bristol, for they serve the Chepstow area.
