Good Oral Hygiene Practices At A Supa Smile

The following are quick and easy steps to maintain good oral hygiene wherever you are.

#1 Hum while you brush

A good brush should be at least two minutes, a practice most people fail to follow. So here’s a quick tip from your A Supa Smile dentist. The next time you brush, pick a song that lasts at least two minutes, and hum along. That way you can ensure the right brushing duration.

#2 Floss and rinse

Brushing does not always remove the plaque in your mouth, particularly that stuck in between teeth. Floss at least once a day, preferably before bedtime. And do not forget to rinse from time to time. There are many types of mouthwash, each specialised for certain dental conditions. Be sure to ask the advice of your A Supa Smile dentist about which one should you use.

#3 Pick the right food

Not all foods are mouth-friendly. Some can leave stains in your teeth, strong odour, and some are not good nutritional choices for your teeth. Sweet treats for instance can damage your pearly whites, and wine can leave a tint. Next time you shop, choose fewer of these goodies and add more mouth-friendly foods in your pushcart.

#4 Avoid smoking

Smoking can do damage to your teeth. The nicotine and tar in a cigarette leave yellow marks on your teeth, and can reduce oxygen supply in the bloodstream, particularly in the gums.

#5 Schedule a regular check-up.

We recommend a regular check-up at least twice a year. Your dentist can assess your teeth’s status and can detect early stages of dental issues.
