Concerned about your oral hygiene? Your South East London dentist is able to help you

01 / 08 / 2011

Medical stories often make the headlines in the modern world and as such people are increasingly concerned with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Having healthy teeth and gums is a vital part of your bodily health and many people are now returning to the dentist, having neglected to go for a while. This is because your local dentist is the best person to see if you want to find out about the information concerning oral hygiene and how to achieve the finest standards of it.

The best place to start is with tooth brushing. This should be carried out at least twice a day, usually in the morning and again in the evening. But it is important that tooth brushing is done correctly to get the maximum effects. You should make sure that you are replacing your brush (or the head if you use an electric tooth brush) every six months or so, or when the bristles have become frayed.

Make sure that you are brushing all areas of your mouth, including the sides of your teeth which are facing into your mouth. Use fluoride tooth paste so that the fluoride can help strengthen your protective enamel, the mouth’s vital, natural defence against plaque.

But don’t forget to floss as well. This often neglected part of the oral hygiene routine is just as important to carry out because your brush won’t be able to remove all of the plaque from teeth and has particular problems with doing so when it comes to plaque that is in between teeth.

Your local South East London dentist is not only there for the purposes of treatment and examination, he or she will be delighted to have a chat with you about your oral hygiene routine.
