There are some great ways to ensure you have a healthier smile and it’s never too late to start taking better care of your oral health. The team at Holistic Dental Melbourne CBD share our top 5 tips so you can have a healthier smile.
- Form a Regular Oral Care Routine at Home
It’s important to ensure you keep bad bacteria away and prevent a build-up of plaque that can damage your teeth, cause tooth decay, gum disease and thereby detract from a healthy smile.
To minimise tartar, brush your teeth twice a day, in the morning after breakfast and at night before bed. Ensure you use a soft toothbrush where the head fits comfortably into your mouth. This will provide a more thorough clean as a smaller head will allow you to get to harder-to-reach places in your mouth.
Replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months or earlier if the toothbrush bristles become worn. This will ensure you are giving your teeth the clean they need.
- Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking water plays an important part of saliva production. Saliva helps to break down what you consume and neutralise acid in your mouth. It also contributes to a healthier microbiome which is the balance of bacteria in your mouth.
Those with dry mouth are likely to experience greater dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease.
- Consider Cosmetic Dentistry
Those who have:
- stained teeth,
- missing teeth,
- an over-bite,
- chipped teeth,
- gappy teeth,
- crooked teeth,
- or a cracked tooth,
may be conscious of their smile. This can have an impact on your well-being as you are not as willing to smile freely, openly and with confidence.
There are a number of options provided by our smile dentist in Melbourne cbd, including dental implants, dental crowns, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, Invisalign, braces and bridges.
- Be Aware of your Diet
Lifestyle habits such as smoking and drinking are not good for your teeth. Further, sugary foods and drinks will contribute to a build up of bacteria and contribute to an acid build up in your mouth. This may then lead to tooth decay, discolouration of your teeth and weaken your teeth and enamel which is there to protect your teeth.
- Get a Regular Dental Check-up with our Dentist Melbourne CBD
