Articles Five Tips to Spring Clean Your Smile
Spring is finally here, and what better excuse to spruce up your smile? If you’re keen on polishing your pearly whites this spring, here are 5 top tips:
- Invest in an electric toothbrush: electric toothbrushes are proven to remove plaque more effectively than manual brushes. If you don’t already have an electric toothbrush, it’s worth investing in one to achieve a deeper, more powerful clean. You don’t have to spend a fortune on an electric toothbrush. Even the basic models do a brilliant job. If you already own an electric brush, swap the brush head if you haven’t done so in the last 3-4 months.
- Set a timer: many of us live at our lives at a frantic pace. If you’re rushing to get ready, this may mean that you cut brushing short. To avoid this, set a timer and make sure you brush for two minutes each time. Some electric brushes come with an inbuilt timer. If you don’t have a watch to hand, use your phone or brush along to a song on the radio.
- Book a dental check-up: if you haven’t been to the dentist in the last 6-9 months, call and make an appointment today! Your dentist can give your teeth a good clean and check that you don’t have any signs of decay or gum disease.
- See a dental hygienist: dental hygienists are experts in providing cleaning treatments. They use advanced cleaning techniques to eliminate plaque and tartar and remove surface stains, giving your smile a healthy glow.
Embrace inter-dental cleaning: most of us know how important brushing is, but it’s also hugely beneficial to clean between your teeth. After brushing, use dental floss or inter-dental brushes to clean the cracks and gaps between your teeth. This can help to prevent discolouration, as well as reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
