Good Oral Hygiene

The best way to take care of your mouth is to:

  • brush twice a day for 2 minutes with a manual or an electric toothbrush (we recommend Oral-B as a brand)
  • use daily interdental cleaning with either floss, tape or interdental brushes (Tepe)
  • use a fluoride containing toothpaste and mouthwash
  • clean your tongue by brushing it or using a tongue cleaner

The aim of oral hygiene is to remove a sticky film called plaque that collects on teeth and gums. Bacteria in plaque produce acids and toxins that damage teeth and gums.

You need to brush your teeth AND the gums.

How to Brush your Teeth

Bleeding gums is a signs of gum disease and we recommend continuing to brush the bleeding/inflammed areas and get in to see your dentist or hygienist if worried.

You need to change your toothbrush every 2-3 months – with Oral-B brushes there is a blue indicator mark to instruct you when to make the change.

It’s important to remember that a good mouthwash cannot replace interdental cleaning.

The best time to use a mouthwash is after lunch, where it will act to reduce the number of bacteria, freshen your breath and also replenish your mouth with fluoride.

With manual toothbrushes you want to aim the head 45 degrees into the gum and go around the gumline in small circles.

With an electric toothbrush you want to aim the brush-head at the gum line and slowly move it around the mouth applying an adequate amount of pressure.

Many modern electric toothbrushes have a pressure indictor to communicate if you are brushing too hard – this will lead to recession of the gums and wear of the teeth.

Take care and time with the difficult to reach areas – back teeth, behind the teeth, and on the inside areas of lower teeth – these are all commonly missed.

The best way to use floss or tape is to take a 30cm strip and wind it around your middle fingers leaving your index finger/thumb to manipulate it to the right areas. You want to pass the floss through the contact points of your teeth and wrap it around each tooth – forming a ‘C’ and sweep this below the gum line on both sides.

95% of the bacteria causing bad breath reside on your tongue – keep it clean for fresh breath!

Hope you found this helpful!

πŸ”₯πŸ”₯REPOST from @ohabioh πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ So as some of you guys have seen I have been going through my @invisalign_uk journey since March. I have always wanted to straighten my teeth, especially one that was super wonky at the front. It made me not want to smile & I would always put my hand over my mouth if I laughed etc. I want to do a thorough video talking about everything but for now this post will do! I used @dentalkind in Billericay who luckily are just around the corner from where I work!! 😁 Sunil has done such a great job on my final touches too, filling in my last few gaps, straightening up and tweaking them to perfection. I still need to have my whitening done which I’m double excited for. If you guys are thinking about having Invisalign through dentalkind, feel free to pop me over a message & I can give you information on how to receive your free consultation (there is absolutely no commitment or pressure at this point) and if you decide to go further, I can also offer you money off your treatment! So my DM’s are open to anyone who wants anymore info πŸ–€ I need to also find a before pic but it’s proving difficult as I never used to smile showing off my β€˜bad’ tooth side haha 🀨

Simple yet satisfying 😁. Nothing uber fancy, just a decayed amalgam filling being replaced with a tooth coloured composite filling.✌🏽

Dentist, please give me a 🦷. This lady had a visible space, did not like smiling and could not afford dental implants. We work with our patients to find suitable solutions to work within their budget.
Here we have a standard porcelain-metal adhesive bridge and this was all completed in 2 weeks. This process involved no drilling and should last many years to come. More aesthetic metal free options also exist (at a higher fee). A positive outcome and another smile improved in time for the weekend! 😁

Composite Smile Makeover .
This young lady wanted to improve her smile and didn’t want to undergo orthodontic treatment. After discussion of her options we agreed to place eight composite veneers. .
Several photos and a 3D scan were used in a digital smile design process. We work with our labs to create the ideal proportions and a result that was in harmony with her face. Thanks to @densign_lab for the amazing digital wax ups. .
The treatment was completed over 3 visits... 1. Placement 2. Refinement 3. Review.
.
Happy patient 😁 Happy dentist πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ

Here we replaced 2 missing teeth using an all ceramic bridge for a natural βœ… comfortable βœ… strong βœ… and aesthetic βœ… outcome.
The patient did not want to have dental implant treatment.
Process: (1) Designing the bridge via a digital wax up process (2) Careful preparation of the teeth to support the bridge (3) Test drive the bridge design with a provisional bridge (4) Final zirconia bridge delivered using a copy of the provisional (NO adjustments were required)
Thanks to @densign_lab for the lovey result. Always consistent work from these guys! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
