Caring for your teeth

It is important that dentist and patient work together to keep a good standard of oral health.

Diet
Try to avoid foods and drinks containing refined sugars. These can encourage dental decay especially if eaten frequently between meals. Dentists are also increasingly aware of the risks of consuming acidic foods and drinks such as fruits, white wine and carbonated drinks which can cause dental erosion and make teeth extra sensitive if left in contact with teeth for long periods. Please ask for advice.

Oral Hygiene
Teeth should be brushed thoroughly twice a day to help prevent gum disease with an effective hand brushing technique or an electric toothbrush. Some patients may also need to floss or use interdental brushes. Please ask for a demonstration.

Further details about caring for you teeth can be found on the BDA Smile web site.
