7 habits that destroy your teeth

Top tips on what to do and what not to do for a healthy smile- a summary of the article found below

1)Do not eat sugar throughout the day…if you are have a bag of sweets, eat them all at once so your teeth are not exposed to a constant stream of sugar…We do suggest avoiding the sweet foods and fizzy drinks altogether!

2)Avoid hard toothbrushes: Please use a soft brush and do not brush too hard as this will cause recession of the gums and lead to sensitivity of the teeth.. Concentrate when you are brushing and use a gentle technique

3) Drink water throughout the day to keep your saliva flowing.. saliva helps wash away plaque and contains agents that will help fight against decay

4)Eat cheese after your meal to help generate saliva and it also helps neutralise any acidic foods you may have eaten

5)Do not rinse directly after washing your teeth as toothpaste contains high levels of fluoride that helps fight against tooth decay. Use your mouthwash at lunch or when you come home in the evening

6)Flossing is very important for our teeth. Decay very often begins in between our teeth as our toothbrush alone will not clean effectively

7)Brush your tongue
