Weston-Super-Mare dentists offer excellent advice on oral hygiene

Keeping your mouth healthy is crucial if you wish to smile with confidence and eat, drink and talk in comfort. For your mouth to exhibit good oral hygiene it ought to be free from debris, with pink gums and not produce bad breath. Your dentist plays a very important part in the upkeep of your oral hygiene but you should be brushing and flossing twice a day to ensure that plaque is not building up. Spotting oral hygiene problems is not difficult. If your gums are painful or bleed or you have bad breath, you might have poor oral hygiene. Other signs to look out for are discolourations on your teeth, particularly yellow or brown patches and you ought to be vigilant for gaps appearing between your teeth. These signs should not be ignored as, without diagnosis and treatment, they are likely to get worse and you may have to deal with cavities, gum disease or even tooth loss. It is better to deal with these things early and you are far less likely to have to undergo painful and invasive surgery. A balanced diet is crucial in ensuring that plaque doesn’t build up on your teeth. Plaque weakens tooth enamel and allows sugars to corrode your teeth and cause cavities. You can help strengthen your enamel and fight plaque by using tooth pastes which contain fluoride and drinking tap water which is enriched with fluoride too. Try to eat sweet foods as part of a meal and then your saliva has more chance of breaking down the acids. Maintain your routine of meeting your Weston-Super-Mare dentist every six months as he or she can give your mouth a thorough examination to check that your oral hygiene is good
