Dental Hygiene FAQs

One of the most important ways of preventing tooth decay and gum disease is by cleaning in between your teeth and removing harmful bacteria. These gaps in between your teeth can be some of the most difficult places to clean as they are hard to reach with a normal toothbrush. The best way to do this is by using other cleaning tools such as floss, to get directly in between each tooth. You should always use dental floss when you brush your teeth, to ensure you’re cleaning every area of your mouth, including hidden gaps.

Diet is one of the biggest factors which can affect your oral hygiene, especially if you eat a lot of sugary foods and drinks which are very acidic. The reason sugar is so harmful to your teeth is that it actually feeds the harmful bacteria on your teeth, causing more damage as the bacteria breaks down your teeth. This is why it’s important to thoroughly and regularly brush your teeth after eating sugary foods. However, it’s important to wait at least an hour before brushing, otherwise, you could simply move the sugar around your mouth rather than removing it completely.

Smoking is one of the worst things you can do to your teeth and your overall dental health. The strong colour of nicotine can very quickly begin to discolour your teeth, turning them a yellow-ish colour. Those who smoke are also six times more likely to develop gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss. By smoking regularly, the gum becomes weaker, making it easier for bacteria to collect and begin to damage your teeth. Even other alternatives such as tobacco chewing gum can cause the same issues, as it will irritate the gums in the same way.

If your teeth have become discoloured as a result of diet or other issues, there are treatments that we can offer to help you get your smile back. Composite bonding and veneers treatments can restore your teeth in more ways than one. By using the material we can rebuild your teeth to make them appear straighter and better aligned, as well as making them appear much whiter. When applying composite veneers, we will place a layer of the material over your entire tooth, whereas with a standard bonding treatment, we would only apply a small amount of the material to certain areas of your teeth.
