Weybridge goes to town on Oral Hygiene

How wonderful is it that we sort-of know how to care for our general oral welfare at home. But sort-of isn’t really enough and you need to be aware of all aspects of your oral hygiene, so you could start by giving Mulberry dental care a call. Though based in Walton, they serve Weybridge and can give supreme advice about you and your oral hygiene. It isn’t exactly rocket science but it is vital that you do your best to get it right. Getting the right products is always high on the agenda, but you should never stop buying them either, the more the merrier in fact. Toothbrushes, toothpastes, dental flosses, inter-dental brushes, mouthwashes and herbal products….buy the lot and keep mixing it up when it comes to cleaning every part of your mouth. By doing this a lot to begin with, it will help you get your technique right and teach you how use your products correctly. Of course, there can be no greater acknowledgement that you are doing things right than that from your dentist. You should keep up with your bi-annual visits, even if it’s just to get the nod that you are on the right track. And if your not, then you are in the company of an expert to patch up anything you may have missed and send you on your way. Between you, you can achieve what is known as perfect oral hygiene.

Braces and your Oral Hygiene in Weybridge

It hard enough to confront the idea of wearing braces, as if your treatment is complex, it is going to be a couple of years before you can finally be free. Also, the braces are probably going to be fixed, which means that you are going to have to be extra vigilant when it comes to oral hygiene throughout. If you need advice on this, Mulberry Dental Care of Walton Surrey can give you all the back-up you need in Weybridge because especially in the beginning, you are going to need a lot of nursing through this period. You are going to have to learn to floss in and around the brace to ensure that you remove any foodstuffs. Inter-dental brushes will need to be used as well, along with your regular toothbrush and pastes, and the use of a good, medical plaque-busting mouth-wash will help to protect your teeth: you can buy a dye that shows up any areas where plaque is building up. Of course, you also have your dentist, and it would be wise in the early stages of brace wearing that you make regular visits in order to ensure you are not only doing things right, but to get your teeth cleaned if you aren’t.

Got problems with bad breath? Don’t despair, Molesley dentists can help

There are no two ways about it, bad breath can be a real pain. It is a nightmare scenario for all of us in social situations and is definitely worth doing your best to avoid. Nobody wants to have unpleasant smells emitting from their mouth when they talk or even smile but a basic understanding of the causes of bad breath can go a long way to helping to overcome it once and for all so that you can relax when with your peers.

You might hear professionals calling bad breath halitosis because that is the medical name for it. For most people bad breath is a relatively straight forward issue to deal with because the causes of it are pretty easy to understand and then sort out. Usually it is a matter of taking the best possible care of your mouth by following a dedicated dental hygiene regime at home.

By making sure that you brush your teeth at least twice a day you will be taking the first step towards ensuring that bad breath doesn’t strike. This is because bad breath is essentially caused by bacteria in the mouth which can usually be removed by the process of brushing. Be sure to floss as well though as the bacteria can easily hide between teeth. Brushing your tongue can help too, as bad breath bacteria thrive there as well.

The problem might be more chronic than just a few uneasy hours after dinner. In this case you should seek more advice from your Molesley dentist about how to rid yourself of the problem in the long term. Chewing gum can be a handy ally too if you are in a situation where brushing is not possible. Keeping the mouth moist should see off most of the troublesome bacteria.
