What exactly is a good oral hygiene routine?
We talk all the time about a good oral hygiene routine, but what exactly does it entail? Here’s the lowdown on what you need to do.
We regularly mention the need for a food oral hygiene regime in our blogs, but what exactly is involved if we want to keep our dentist happy when we turn up for our regular checkup?
Here’s a simple guide to the more important things you should build into your regular dental habits:
This may seem like quite a lot of rules to obey, but once you turn these actions into habits, they become an automatic part of your day – just like getting dressed in the morning.
And if you add up the time involved, if accounts for no more than a few minutes out of every day, which is surely an acceptable price to pay for a lovely smile and fresh breath confidence?
The biggest evil when it comes to your teeth is neglect. First of all, you neglect the brushing, then it becomes a habit and soon you have a root canal cost to shell out – simply because you became too lax in your oral care regime.
And it goes without saying that root canal treatment cost comes to way more than the cost of toothbrush and paste, floss or interdental brushes.
So with the end of the year in sight, why not let your new year’s resolution be a healthier, happier mouth?
