Our teeth are one of the first things people notice about us â€“ we can help you take care of your oral health as well as finding ways to improve the appearance of your teeth to give you a smile that makes you beam with pride.
A healthy smile starts at home
Everyone should be brushing their teeth for two minutes every morning and every evening, this will help to keep cavities and gum disease away. The toothbrush head should be half on the tooth and half on the gum but make sure you donâ€™t â€œscrubâ€ too hard as this can damage the gums, remember gently does it!
Flossing twice a day is essential to prevent the build up of plaque and bacteria. Make sure you donâ€™t just saw in and out, tension the floss at an angle to clean the inside of your teeth. Alternatively you can try interdental brushes like tepe. These are inserted between your teeth and remove 40% more debris than brushing alone â€“ if you are unsure whatâ€™s best for you come and see our hygienist Rebecca.
To safeguard against decay, dentists recommend cutting down on your sugar intake, eating no more than four teaspoons a day and avoiding acidic food and drink which erode the enamel of your teeth.
Give yourself a smile makeover
The quickest way to make a dramatic difference to your teeth is by whitening them. A bright white smile helps you look and feel yearâ€™s younger, boosting self esteem. A fast, convenient and affordable way to brighten your smile.
One of the biggest advances in dentistry is the invisible brace. Crooked and over lapping teeth is a key reason for dental problems and itâ€™s never too late to opt for braces in an effort to sort things out. Modern braces are less bulky and painful and are virtually invisible â€“ we offer free consultations to discuss your needs. Call us on 0115 9733591
