It’s National Smile Month with Quayside Orthodontist and we have some tips to keep your teeth pearly white…
We caught up with Dr. James Davies, a specialist orthodontist at Quayside Orthodontist where they pride themselves on great customer service – going the extra mile for the perfect smile…
We asked tips on how to keep your teeth and gums healthy – They told us keeping your mouth healthy is very important. By looking after your teeth and gums you can avoid tooth decay and gum disease. Good brushing is very important. Smoking causes tooth staining, bad breath, gum disease, tooth loss and mouth cancer. Some alcoholic drinks are acidic and very sugary which cause tooth decay or erosion if consumed in large amounts. Visit your dentist regularly to check your teeth and gums are healthy. Using a fluoride alcohol free mouth rinse at a separate time to brushing can help reduce plaque, strengthen teeth and freshen breath. Using dental floss each day to remove plaque build up.
We also asked for teeth and brace friendly food and drink – They told us fizzy drinks and soft drinks can cause damage to your teeth so should be avoided during treatment. Chocolates and sweets should be kept to a minimum and only eaten at meal times. Sticky food such as toffee and caramel must be avoided because they can loosen the braces and break wires. Hard and crunchy foods such as apples, raw carrots, nuts are best eaten by cutting them up into smaller pieces and chewing with the back teeth. Eating 3 meals a day instead of snacking is better for your health and teeth!
