Oral Hygiene in London

Oral hygiene should fit into your regime in London as importantly as anything else in your life, for it can have very serious implications to your overall health, let alone your bank balance in the long run. If you have any doubts about how you should care for your teeth, the first point of contact should be your dentist (for a check up anyway!). Every mouth is different as are most people’s constitution, so your dentist can advise you on what is best for you. Your choice of toothpaste and brush are the important tools to start with and sometimes this can be a little bit of trial and error to get right at first. Mouthwashes are also useful to have in the bathroom cabinet as they help to fight plaque and tartar. Dental floss and tiny brushes are very good for getting into areas that general brushing misses. Yet, along with these obvious products, it’s also helpful to plan ahead for any crisis that may arise. There is no harm in having a few herbal remedies such tea tree, Echinacea, clove or aloe vera oils lying around the house- all of which can be used with general products anyway, but along with painkillers, they are great for soothing any discomfort that may crop up. Of course, it’s quite important what you put in your mouth too. Smoking, heavy drinking and poor diet can reduce the immune system and allow gum disease to have its wicked way in your mouth. And lest we forget, all this information is readily available on-line so, do a little research yourself and keep your mouth healthy.
