Taking good care of your mouth, teeth and gums is a worthy goal in and of itself, not only for your appearance. Good oral and dental hygiene can help prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease—and can help you keep your teeth as you get older. Here are our tips:
- Brush your teeth effectively with fluoride toothpaste for two minutes at least once a day, before breakfast (rinse well after eating) or last thing at night before you go to bed. This removes the harmful bacteria that will otherwise thrive in your mouth, creating harmful acids that start tooth decay. The hygienist may give you more advice based on your own dental health and needs.
- Visit your hygienist regularly as it will allow the oral professional to see if you have any dental problems and will help you keep your mouth healthy. Leaving problems untreated could make them more difficult to treat in the future, so it’s best to deal with problems early, or prevent them altogether.
- Brighten you smile by whitening and lightening the dulling colour of older teeth, preferably using a treatment that let your teeth appear naturally whiter.
Reposition crooked teeth by using Invisalign – the teeth straightening system of nearly invisible braces that will work without interrupting your busy daily routine.
Replace old metal and discoloured fillings with lifelike composite restorations.
Have a crown created for a tooth that’s needed root canal treatment. This will protect the less supple tooth tissue from fracture.
If f you’ve lost a front tooth, replace it with an IMPLANT – designed for comfort and natural appearance.
