Oral hygiene is a must for us all in Surrey, and when we are not leaning on the dentist for help, it is down to us to be responsible for our teeth at home. However, whilst on the subject of the dentist, this is the best starting point for advice. Oral hygiene starts with ensuring that you get the right brush you need and that you know how to use it. That might sound silly, but it’s incredible how many people still have problems brushing their teeth; your dentist knows your mouth, they seen it, worked on it, been inside it- so they’re are perfect to chat to about getting the right brush i.e., there’s no point getting a hard bristled brush if you have sensitive teeth and gums, etc, etc, your dentist can set you straight on this. Then it’s down to personal preference and, a little bit of trial and error before you get it exactly right. Most popular today are the incredible selection of electric brushes- some pulse, some go up and down, others round and round, but whatever one you opt for, they are very efficient and take all of the hard work out of brushing. One thing is very important about brushes and that’s the bristles. These should be cleaned after brushing to prevent the build up of bacteria, and it is widely agreed in dental circles, that they be changed after about 6 months.
