Healthy Living | Keep That Smile Alive! How To Improve Your Dental Health


Is there anything worse than toothache? It’s one of the most nagging, awful pains that you can experience – and you can’t even resort to comfort food to make yourself feel a little better. Going to the dentist is also a unique sort of agony. The treatment for toothache is usually a relief when it’s over, but the actual process of sitting in the dentist’s chair and allowing someone to poke around in your mouth – and sometimes causing you even more pain – can be absolutely awful and put you off going to the dentist as long as you can. Here are some tips on how to make sure that your dental health is in tiptop condition during 2017.

Brush Your Teeth Twice A Day

Over the course of the day, plaque will build up in your mouth. This is a sticky coating containing bacteria that covers your teeth and can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Invest in a dentist approved electric toothbrush, and make sure you brush your teeth for at least two minutes after you get up and before you go to bed. Give it half an hour after you’ve eaten, because the enamel on your teeth will be more susceptible to damage from your toothbrush then. You should also make sure that you floss – this will help to remove the plaque on your teeth that your toothbrush can’t reach.

Eat Less Sugary Food

Sugar can cause acidic build up in your mouth, which can then lead to tooth decay as it erodes the enamel on your teeth. That means that it’s crucial that you cut down on food like chocolate and candy, along with sugary drinks like soda and juice, and hot drinks with added sugar like tea and coffee. You should avoid hard candy the most, because they stay in your mouth for longer, meaning more damage to your teeth. Foods like pickles can also cause acidic build up in your mouth, so should be avoided.

Smoke And Drink Less

Cutting down on cigarettes and alcohol isn’t just good for your teeth – it’s crucial for your entire body, particularly your liver and lungs. Cigarettes can stain your teeth (and fingers!) yellow, and can also give you bad breath, along with making you more susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease and mouth and throat cancers. Like sugary drinks, alcohol destroys the enamel on your teeth. If you’re finding it hard to quit, try hypnosis or a support group, and if you’re worried about your teeth, talk to a company like Healthy Smiles Dental.

Keep An Eye Out For Dental Problems

A lot of us ignore slight twinges in our teeth as we don’t like going to the dentist, but it’s important to treat problems as soon as you encounter them. Bleeding gums when you floss could be a sign of gum disease that could lead to you losing teeth in the long run, so it’s important to get checked out. Other signs to watch out for include wobbly teeth, sensitivity to hot and cold, any tooth pain, and sore red gums. Get the problem seen to as early as possible so the treatment won’t be too bad.
