Tips to Spring Clean Your Oral Hygiene Routine

Eludril and Elgydium recommend the following approach to spring cleaning your oral hygiene:

1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day for around two minutes. It is too easy to overlook this when you are tired and it is late. If you are at home for the evening, get ready for bed before you start feeling tired. That way, you brush your teeth and floss when you are more alert and it is less of a chore. Just don’t eat or drink anything afterwards. Brushing techniques

2. Floss every day, as this reaches areas that a toothbrush might miss. Get into the habit, it does not take long at all.  Find out how to floss.

3. Visit your dentist or hygienist on a regular basis, as this will ensure that any indications of gum disease are spotted and treated as soon as possible. Not been to your dentist/hygienist for a while? Pick up the phone and make that all important appointment.

4. Replace your toothbrush regularly (every three or four months or as soon as the bristles look worn). Add this to your next shopping list.

5. Avoid starchy, sugary foods and drinks, as these make the problem worse. Think about what you eat and its effect on your health.

6. Eat plenty of fresh foods and vegetables and avoid snacking between meals. If you are hungry between meals, snack on something healthy like fresh fruit, particularly apples or raw vegetables such as carrots.  Not only are they good for you but the action of chewing will stimulate saliva flow which reduces the build-up of bacteria.
