Dental Tips

  • Proper brushing involves moving the brush in soft, short strokes. Position the brush in a way that it forms a 45 degree angle against the gum and move the brush in a circular motion away from the gum.
  • Flossing before brushing helps dislodge plaque and food debris so brushing can wipe it away.
  • Baby´s first teeth usually come in on the top front. They start coming in when they are about 6 or 7 months old.
  • A child will usually have 20 teeth by age 2.
  • A child will usually lose it's first tooth at 7 years of age
  • The hardest thing in your body is the enamel on your teeth.
  • Mammals have two types of teeth, the primary teeth and the permanent teeth.
  • Avoid drinking water for at least 30 minutes after tea to avoid teeth staining
  • Avoid dry mouth - Saliva provides an essential defense against tooth decay and periodontal disease. Where there is insufficient saliva serious dental health problems can arise
  • In addition to cleaning thoroughly between the teeth it is recommended that you also clean your tongue on a daily basis. A major cause of bad breath can actually come from bacteria building up on your tongue with a high percentage of it accumulating at the back, making it hard to reach.
  • If you are looking for a good mouthwash then make sure it is alcohol-free, as alcohol is an irritant and can dry out the mouth. This will have the effect of reducing the amount of saliva present, and make your teeth more susceptible to bacteria.
  • Rinse twice a day – once in the morning and last thing at night and always after brushing
