At Zen Dental Studio, we know you want to maintain healthy teeth not just for yourself, but your family as well. In this blog, we discuss some tips on how to maintain healthy teeth, and how the team at Zen Dental Studio in Bridgeman Downs can help.
Maintain a good oral hygiene routine
To maintain healthy teeth, you must also maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine.
Brush your teeth regularly
You should aim to brush your teeth at least twice a day, using fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a leading defense against tooth decay as it fights germs and provides a protective barrier for your teeth.
Choose a toothbrush with soft bristles as they are kinder on your enamel and gums, and one with a small head to get to hard-to-reach areas.
Don’t forget to floss! Flossing can prevent tooth decay and gum disease as it removes the tiny particles of food that aren’t reached by your toothbrush.
Mouthwash can also supplement your oral hygiene routine and can result in a clear reduction in dental issues such as plaque and gingivitis. Plus, the added benefit of fresh, minty breath. Remember not to dilute the mouthwash with water to get the full effect of the fluoride in the mouthwash.
Eat a healthy diet
A healthy diet is essential for oral health and overall wellbeing. Having a balanced diet full of vegetables, fruits, and plenty of water will do wonders for your teeth, mouth and gums.
Try and avoid sweet or acidic foods as they can erode the tooth enamel and cause cavities. Avoid sticky and chewy foods where possible, as well as foods and drinks that cause discolouration.
Regular Check-ups and Cleans
The best way to keep your teeth healthy is to visit your dentist regularly. Your dentist knows all of the warning signs of dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, tooth erosion, tooth decay and oral cancer. As not all issues form above the gum line, they also use x-rays which can see way more than the naked eye.
Regular professional cleaning at your dentist is a fantastic way to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Your dentist can remove most of the surface stains and discolouration on your teeth, so you’ll be left with a brighter, whiter smile. A professional clean can also help to get to those hard-to-reach places and provide a deeper clean than what you can do at home. The clean will finish up with a polish and a fluoride wash to remineralise your enamel.
