Okay, now listen up. If you can learn to keep plaque at bay successfully in Bristol, you have good chance of having good oral health throughout your life. Unfortunately, people are still relatively ignorant when it comes to oral hygiene, so maybe it’s time to take time out and re-educate yourself in looking after your teeth and gums. Firstly, try to watch what you eat to give yourself a strong constitution, and cut back on the joys of life, such as smoking and drinking; doing this will give you a good platform to build from. Then you’re into the heady world of toothbrushes, pastes and mouth-washes. These are important to get right (it may take time at first), because just by keeping your teeth clear of bacteria by brushing and flossing twice a day, will give you a fighting chance against plaque. There are many to choose from, but by enlisting the help of your dentist, you should get there in the end: be sure to keep your brush clean and change it regularly for a new one. Of course, if you still get into trouble and some of those evils get through, you always have the dentist to call on for back-up. They will be able to clean your teeth thoroughly and mend anything that has gone wrong-make sure you keep up your visits for these reasons alone.
