Taking care of your teeth and gums is super important for your overall health and well-being. Your mouth is a gateway to the rest of your body, and poor oral hygiene can lead to all sorts of issues, like pain and sensitivity, tooth decay, and more serious conditions like gingivitis and periodontitis.
But don’t worry, it’s easier than you might think to keep your mouth healthy.
Brushing and flossing
One of the most important aspects of oral care is regular brushing and flossing. Brushing at least twice a day, for two minutes each time, helps to remove plaque and bacteria from the teeth and gums. Flossing once a day is also essential for removing plaque and food particles from between the teeth and along the gumline. Regular brushing and flossing can help to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
An easy way to keep to this routine is to choose a toothbrush and toothpaste you love. Check out our range of oral care to find your favourite Red Seal toothpaste for you and the whole family.
Sugars and acids in food and drinks can erode tooth enamel and contribute to the development of cavities. Eating a healthy diet with lots of fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins can help keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.
And don't forget to visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Visiting your dentist every six months can help catch any issues early on, preventing them from turning into more severe and expensive problems down the road. Your dentist can also provide a professional cleaning to remove any hard-to-reach plaque and tartar build-up sometimes missed with your daily brushing and flossing routine.
So remember to prioritise your oral health with an incredible routine to keep your smile bright and healthy for the years to come!
