Our newsletter: A few tips

22nd September 2020

Welcome to our September newsletter!

This month we share a few oral hygiene tips. We have also included some information on our tooth straightening solutions. As usual we have our updates from the team and social media and not forgetting our ‘question of the month!’

A little refresh on oral hygiene

Brushing your teeth every morning and night doesn’t guarantee you’re giving your mouth all the attention it needs. Even a regular oral hygiene routine could be leaving gaps if you engage in a few not-so-great habits with your time at the sink. With just a few simple measures you can ensure a healthier mouth….

Adopt the right brushing technique

A quick wash of your bristles isn’t enough to banish leftover food particles and polish your teeth. Instead, start with your brush at a 45-degree angle to your gums and use short back and forth strokes across the sides and tops of your teeth. Then, hold the brush vertically and use several shorter strokes to focus on the backs of your teeth of the front anterior teeth where plaque builds up often.

Brush enough

Many people brush regularly, but simply don’t brush enough for their teeth to stay clean. We recommend brushing for at least two minutes, twice daily.

Pick the right brush

Always look for a brush whose head and bristles are small enough to reach into the crevices of your molars, where food debris can hide after you eat.

Floss properly

Like brushing, flossing must be done properly so that, when you reach between teeth, you actually get to the germs that are stuck there.

Clean your brush

Rinse your brush after each use and allow it to air dry. You should also avoid sharing brushes with others, even your kids.

Change your brush

Bristles deteriorate with time and usage, so if you’re using the same toothbrush beyond a few months, you may not be getting the best clean anymore.

Use a tongue scraper

After brushing, bacteria can still remain on the tongue, so be sure to brush or scrape your tongue as part of your daily routine.
