Tooth decay can be painful and lead to fillings, crowns or inlays. If tooth decay is not treated, the nerve of the tooth can become infected and die, causing an abscess. This may then need root canal treatment or even for the tooth to be removed. It is very important that you keep up a good routine at home to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
It can be treated and kept under control with regular cleaning sessions and check-ups, preventing further problems. If teeth are lost, it may be necessary to fill the gaps with bridges, dentures or implants.
Attractive packages for company needs at their convenience and value-added benefit/care for employees. Here are some tips to help you look after your teeth.
Brush at least twice a day
The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums.
Use fluoridated toothpaste
Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.
Tooth brushing should take between two and three minutes.
Floss your teeth daily
Use a slow and gentle sawing motion.
Limit acidic drinks like soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices
Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing holes (cavities or caries). In severe cases, teeth may be ‘eaten’ right down to the gum.
Limit sugary foods
Bacteria in dental plaque change sugars into acids.
Protect your teeth from injury
Wear a mouthguard or full-face helmet when playing sports.
Try to save a knocked out tooth. If possible, hold the tooth back in place while you seek immediate dental advice. If this is not possible, wrap the tooth in plastic or place it in milk and seek dental advice immediately.
Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food
If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping or even breaking your teeth.
See your dentist for regular check-ups
You should also visit your dentist if you have a dental problem such as a toothache or bleeding gums.
Good dental health begins with you. By following these simple tips you can keep your mouth clean and healthy:
- Brush your teeth for two minutes, last thing at night and at least one other time during the day, using fluoride toothpaste.
