Caring for your teeth and gums
Posted on Jun 18, 2015
Many people make the mistake of leaving their teeth and gums until they are in agony with toothache. This is not the best way to care for your teeth and the sooner you start following a good dental care program, the longer you will enjoy the benefits of your own teeth in your mouth.

Over the years your teeth start to crumble, it’s a fact of life, which results in receding gums, chipped teeth and fillings, root canal treatments and more. Taking good care of your teeth and gums can reduce the risk of an emergency appointment at your local surgery and leave you with gleaming white teeth day after day.

The first and probably most important aspect of dental care is tooth brushing. There are people that get obsessed with tooth brushing, which can lead to other problems if carried out too often. Ideally you should brush your teeth two to three times per day for at least two minutes per brush.

Take your time ensure you brush each tooth, removing any plaque and debris. If you feel you don’t do a good job by hand, why not purchase a battery operated toothbrush which swivels constantly, providing your teeth with a thorough cleaning. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, which harbours a lot of the bacteria in your mouth.

Once you have the brushing aspect down, it’s time to look at flossing. Everyone should floss at least once a day. Flossing can reduce the risk of gum disease and can help remove plaque build-up. There has even been evidence that regular flossing can reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

The good news is that floss comes in a variety of flavours. Then there is mouthwash. Mouthwash can be an integral part of your dental care, reducing bacteria in your mouth, which can lead to gum disease. After brushing, take a mouthful of mouthwash and give it a good swirl around before spitting it out, it will not only help reduce the risk of gum disease, but it will also help remove plaque and leave you with fresh breath.

It’s essential that as part of your dental care program you replace your toothbrush on a regular basis. Ideally your toothbrush should be changed every three months, as a rule. But there are many cases where you should change it sooner.

If you are sick or already have gum disease, it’s essential you change your toothbrush within a few weeks, rather than waiting the three month period. When you are ill, replace your toothbrush once you are better, reducing the risk of infection. If you have gum disease, try and change your toothbrush once a month, as bacteria does build up on the brush, which means you are just pushing it around your mouth and not eliminating it.

Finally, don’t skip your dentist appointments. So many people only visit the dentist when in pain, but they are there to help prevent problems before they start. You should visit your dentist every one to two years for a check-up and maybe a clean. The dentist can clean your teeth much better than any toothbrush, removing tartar build up and plaque and leaving you with smooth and clean teeth.

Whatever you do ensure you go to all your dental check-ups, doing this along with a good dental care program can ensure that you have healthy teeth and gums. This also means that you are less likely to need to visit your dentist for an emergency treatment.
