Best Methods Of Oral Hygiene In Harlow

Maintaining a good daily oral hygiene regime goes a long way to keep dental diseases at bay, as well as helping to ensure your smile looks bright and healthy. Surveys show that many people neglect their daily oral hygiene routine, but in reality, it takes just a few minutes each day and can make a real difference to your oral and general health. We recommend brushing twice a day for at least 2 minutes each time using fluoride toothpaste. In addition, flossing is very important because it enables you to remove plaque and any left over food debris from your gum line and the cracks between your teeth, which are impossible to clean with a brush. For those who don’t like flossing, we can also recommend inter-dental brushes, which are specially designed to clean the gaps between the teeth. Research shows that electric toothbrushes are more effective at removing plaque, but you can still clean your teeth thoroughly with a manual toothbrush. In addition to good oral hygiene practices at home, we also recommend regular sessions with a dental hygienist. Hygienists have expert training in providing oral hygiene treatments and they play a very important role in the prevention of common dental health issues, including decay and gum disease. The cleaning treatments provided by dental hygienists are much more powerful than brushing at home and they remove bacteria, plaque and left over bits of food from the mouth to leave your mouth feeling amazingly clean. Seeing your dentist and dental hygienist on a regular basis will also give your smile a lovely glossy glow and ensure your teeth look lovely and white. If you have any questions about brushing, using inter-dental brushes, flossing or choosing oral hygiene products, we will be happy to help.
