Tips For Keeping Teeth Clean And Healthy
Maintaining clean and healthy teeth on a daily basis is made so much easier with just a few simple tips. Did you know smiling is actually contagious and you’re more likely to get promoted if you smile often?
Choose the right toothpaste
If you find your teeth are stained in areas, bad breath plagues you throughout the day or your teeth are sensitive to cold, heat and acids, choosing the right toothpaste will help improve these problems greatly. Check out the Janina Ultra White range for a variety of toothpastes or visit our blog post for choosing the right Janina Ultra White toothpaste for you.
Change your toothbrush often
They don’t last forever and if you’re using them twice a day for the recommend two minutes, the bristles will soon be out of shape and ineffective in cleaning your teeth. Many dentist professionals will recommend you change every three months or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A new toothbrush will help to remove more plaque to keep your teeth healthy!
There’s no getting around it, your toothbrush only reaches certain areas of your teeth and can’t clean between your teeth as well as floss does. Take a small amount into your hand and hold it taunt, whilst you gently pull it back and forth between your teeth. Do this one a day to keep plaque and food from being stuck in your teeth.
Visit the dentist
Your teeth are an important part of you and without regular checks at the dentist, treatments could involve more work then if they were previously spotted by a dentist. Prevention is better than cure! It is recommended you see your dentist every 6 months, unless advised otherwise.
Limit foods and drinks that stain teeth
We have a full blog post on the foods and drinks that are proven to staining teeth, but the main culprits are tea, coffee, red wine and nicotine. If you find your teeth are stained, one of these products could be the reason and looking at limiting your consumption could help.
