It can sometimes be tempting to skip over your daily oral care hygiene routine after a long and hectic day. However, keeping your teeth sparkling and your gums healthy isn’t as difficult as you may think, especially if you follow these quick and easy steps!

Brush Twice Daily

It’s vital that you brush every morning and right before bed to remove any plaque, bacteria and food debris that can build up on your teeth and gums. This helps keep your mouth healthy and greatly reduces the risk of inflammation, which can irritate teeth and gums. Be sure to replace your toothbrush every 3 months, or as soon as the bristles start to wear down.

Floss

People often overlook flossing when it comes to their dental hygiene routine, but a healthy smile starts with healthy gums. By flossing twice daily, you remove anything that brushing may miss and further reduces the risk of developing gum disease. Just be sure not to be too hard while flossing and take your time.

Sugar Free Alternatives

Instead of opting for a fizzy drink, try stick to water instead as a drink to have with lunch or dinner. Try ditching those sweet treats and stick with crunchy fruit and veg. Bacteria in your mouth feeds on the acids in sugar, so by cutting that down, you help protect your teeth from potential cavities.

Clean on the Go!

Your teeth are under constant attack as you eat and drink throughout your day. To care of them on the go, shew sugar free gum, drink plenty of water. You can even bring a spare toothbrush and toothpaste to work!
