Manual or electric?

When it comes to choosing between a manual or electric toothbrush, it’s a personal choice – they’re equally effective at removing plaque and debris if used correctly. Both types need to be kept in tip-top condition. Over time, bristles become frayed and worn, so remember to replace the toothbrush or brush head every three months.

When choosing a manual toothbrush, make sure it has a small head for better access to the back teeth. Also, soft bristles are kinder on your gums.

A rechargeable electric toothbrush appeals to all ages and it’s a real winner for young children. While the kids are attracted to the bright colours, the electric motion of the toothbrush does the job effectively.

Do you know the correct brushing technique?

Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is essential – after breakfast in the morning and before going to bed at night.

Spend at least 2 minutes brushing, ensuring that all areas are cleaned – the inside, outside, and biting surfaces of each tooth. The key is to aim the toothbrush bristles directly at the gum line, rather than the top of the tooth, as this is where plaque starts to form.

Gently move the toothbrush in a circular motion, which will clean away as much plaque from the gums as possible.

Cleaning between teeth

Removing plaque between your teeth requires regular flossing at least once a day after brushing. Simply run a piece of floss (which resembles a cotton thread or string) between your teeth, using a slow, gentle sawing motion.

Nowadays, dental tape – a wide, flat ribbon of nylon that’s thinner than standard floss – has become a popular option, especially for beginners, as it’s an easier way to get between the teeth.

If you’re not quite sure how to clean between your teeth, or if you’d like help deciding on which option is best for you, get some advice from your local Armidale Dental Care team.

Follow the right diet

Try to reduce or eliminate the amount of sugary food and fizzy drinks you eat and drink. It converts to acid inside your mouth and can dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing decay (caries) and eventually holes (cavities). Acidic foods and drinks can also cause tooth erosion which causes tooth sensitivity, discolouration and cracks over time.

To limit the contact of acids with the teeth, eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. For example, for breakfast you could have a crunchy wholegrain cereal topped with low fat, sugar-free yoghurt and fresh fruit. Throughout the day, limit acidic drinks, such as soft drinks, sports drinks, cordials, wine and even fruit juices – in fact, it’s best to eat whole fruit rather than drinking the juice. You get more fibre and less sugar – fruit juce can contain up to 10 teaspoons of sugar! The best drinks are less acidic and include still water, milk or tea (without sugar or honey, of course).

Another way to help your body fight bacteria in your mouth is by introducing foods that promote saliva production. This includes tart or sour foods, such as limes, lemons, cherries and cranberries.

Gum disease is a serious and dangerous dental issue that needs to be avoided at all costs. In fact, if you’re not careful, gum disease can cause loose and lost teeth. This disease typically forms when plaque is left on your smile for a long period of time. Here are some tips to help you prevent gum disease:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: You need to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your teeth once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. As you do these things, use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, floss that is easier to use, and antibacterial mouthwash. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing can help you remove plaque from the surfaces of and cracks between your teeth as well as along the gumline.

-Visit your dentist: Your regular dental cleaning is vital when preventing gum disease. This is because our tools and techniques will remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gumline. Your oral hygiene routine won’t be able to completely clean your smile, which is why dental cleanings are necessary.
