Routine Oral Hygiene in Central London

How hard can Oral Hygiene be in Central London?
Oral hygiene is the engine behind a whole process of stopping your mouth into disrepair and putting your body health, teeth and gums in danger. But for all our better efforts, there are a lot of us living in central London who are still not getting our oral hygiene right, or not even doing it at all. Just by buying the best products around is pretty pointless if you don’t know how to apply them correctly. So let’s get back to basics; brushing, flossing and rinsing- that’s all there is to it. Find the right brush that fits your mouth and then find toothpaste to accompany it and then learn how to use them. Floss, because your brush can’t always get right into the areas that floss can- and then rinse; mouthwashes just put the icing on the cake. There are other little devices such as inter-dental brushes that you can use between the teeth to remove foodstuffs and by using herbal remedies such as Echinacea or tea tree oil to massage your gums with, it will help stimulate them and keep them healthy. But the most important part of this oral jigsaw is your dentist who can check if you are doing okay every 6 months. They can patch you up and fix any problems, tell you off for not behaving yourself and then advise you if you are having problems with your oral hygiene. Rocket science…no, but vitally important…most definitely!
