Practicing a good dental care regime can feel difficult at times but it is a lot better than tedious dental procedures that follow after a poor dental health care. Regency House Dental firmly believes in preventive measures and a good at-home dental care for the protection of your smile. Here are some simple steps to take care of your teeth at home.
Lots of water over soda
Staying hydrated is not just great for your skin it also helps you to skip harmful items like soda. Our dentists at Regency house Dental Clinic recommend seven glasses of water or sixty-four ounces of water daily. With all that water, sodas and other fizzy drinks don’t stand a chance.
Wash after each meal-big or small
Many at times, you forget to brush after a good dinner or maybe you are just too lazy. Our dentists recommend a thorough wash after each meal to make sure that any food particle left between your teeth is washed away. It is that food particle that can cause a lot of trouble later on so why keep it? Wash your teeth after each meal and try brushing them after dinner especially.
Using a tongue scraper helps
As important as it is to have clean teeth, it is important to keep your tongue free of debris and bacteria. Tongue scraper is a very helpful tool to help you keep your tongue clean and fresh. You may also use your personal tooth brush to brush your tongue too but adding a tongue scraper to your oral health care regime can do wonders.
Avoid hard brushing
When you are choosing your next tooth brush, our dentists recommend a good soft or medium-soft brush for your daily cleaning. Hard bristles can be too rough for your gums and can also wear away the enamel protecting your tooth! You can discuss this with our friendly hygienist
Skipping your dental appointment is never OK
Never assume that skipping your dental appointment is okay. Our dentist in St Albans recommend every person to start receiving dental care as soon as they are 6 months old! Dental check ups are required every six to eight months and must be religiously followed.
Now you see, with these simple ways you can protect your teeth and avoid most of the dental issues. Keeping good oral habits is the key to a good oral health. For more dental queries and help, you can get in touch with our clinic.
