Brushing and flossing your problems away in South East London

24 / 02 / 2013

Although we have our dentist to fall back on if things start to go wrong in our mouths, there are lots of things we should do at home to prevent these issues cropping up in the first place, and something we should always be evolving throughout our lives in south east London is the way we brush and floss our teeth on a daily basis: your teeth will change as you get older and hence, so then should the way you care for them. Brushing and flossing should be done at least twice a day, especially after eating so that you ensure any film carrying bacteria and acids are removed from the surfaces of your teeth. Getting a good brush is imperative and there are some brilliant ones on the market to choose from- especially electric ones and then once you have settled on your choice, you need to learn how to use it until it becomes second nature to you; your dentist can advise you on these techniques. Brushes however are unlikely to remove foodstuffs from between the teeth and up around the gums, which is where flossing comes in. Flosses too come in different guises and thicknesses so it’s vital to get one that suits your mouth. Again, practise make perfect and keep doing it until you have got your technique perfect. These things that we can sometimes take for granted are the difference between a healthy mouth and one that has tooth decay and gum disease.
