How can I make my teeth strong?

Here are some tips to help you look after your teeth.

  1. Brush regularly (twice a day): Choose a toothbrush with a small head to have better access to back teeth and soft bristles which are kind with your gums. The best time for brushing is 10 minutes after your meals.
  2. Use fluoridated toothpaste: Fluoride will assist your teeth, strengthening your tooth enamel and reducing the risk of the cavities.
  3. Brush vigilantly: Brush every single tooth for at least 2 minutes. When kids are brushing supervise them to do it correctly and thoroughly.
  4. Floss your teeth every day: Take your time when you are flossing; gently floss between each tooth.
  5. Limit acidic drinks like soft drinks, cordials, etc:  Acidic liquids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, leading to a cavity.
  6. Avoid sugary foods and snacks: Bacteria in your mouth change sugars into acids. If you have a sweet tooth, always rinse your teeth after eating chocolate or sweet snacks, or at least drink a couple of glass of water!
  7. Protect your teeth: Wear a mouthguard if you suffer from teeth-grinding and/or when doing contact sports. Please call Distinct Dental Centre, if you need more information
  8. Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food: If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping or even breaking your teeth.
  9. Do not forget to visit your dentist for a regular check-up: If you have a dental problems such as a toothache or bleeding gums please call us for further investigation. If you feel anxious whenever you see a dentist, please express your anxiety to our team when making your appointment.
  10. Diet: eat a balanced diet comprised of foods which are healthy for gums and teeth. These include:
    – Fibres and minerals such as whole grain bread
    – Water and juice, always keep hydrated
    – Proteins, fruits and vegetables, Low-Fat Dairy
