How to maintain a sparkle with your teeth for as long as possible

Taking care of your teeth is important for your health and not doing this can have some significant, unfortunate impacts.Within the UK, it is becoming harder to get a NHS dentist appointment and as a result a lot of people are having to go private to get the care they need. Therefore, it is even more important to take preventative measures to ensure that your teeth are taken care of and that you do not require treatment.We also have the “Turkey teeth” fad now where a lot of people are looking to get the sparkle from their teeth and get them as white as possible. A lot of this seems to be driven by TV and social media where most high-profile people have now had this completed. Below are some suggestions on how to best maintain your teeth.

Whiter than White

If you are looking to go for the whiter and white look then you may be better seeing a dentist and going for the cosmetic treatment. Companies such as Innovadent are experts in this field and can give you a dental plan around this. Before you select this option, it is important to understand the “look” you are looking for. Are you looking for pure brilliant white or are you more looking for an authentic look which would not be brilliant white? The costing for this sort of treatment is not as expensive as you would think and with most private practitioners that provide this service, you can pay on a monthly plan.

Gum Care

Taking care of your gums is important to prevent tooth decay and bad breath. There are preventative things you can do to make sure that this is prevented which include a good mouthwash. Taking a swill of mouthwash a couple of times a day will help take care of your gums. Avoid eating and drinking sugary drinks also as these will have a direct impact on your gums and make some of your teeth feels sensitive. And make sure to get regular check-ups with your dentist every 6 months to spot early signs and take preventative measures.

Brushing / Flossing

The recommendation from various sources is to brush your teeth several times a day (morning and night at least). This is an effective way to get rid of plaque that has built up. It is important to not brush too hard though as by doing this you could damage the teeth. As such, brushing regularly but gently is the most effective way. It is also recommended that you floss your teeth daily. Depending on how your teeth are constructed, if you have gaps between them, flossing is even more important as this is an easy way to for the plaque to build up very quickly. An electric toothbrush is also something that is recommended normally be dentists to help give a level of consistency when brushing. These can be purchased at reasonable prices nowadays and do not cost a lot like they did many years ago.
