How you can protect yourself against decay with the help of Harris Dental Boutique

It is a common oral health condition, and at Harris Dental Boutique based in Bundaberg, we are here to help…

Bacteria inside the mouth survive on sweet and starchy food particles, and if left unclean, can progress to these food debris and flourish. This then forms a gluey film over the teeth known as plaque, which builds up on the smile and can harden to cause calculus. As soon as calculus is present, you will need a professional clean at Harris Dental Boutique in Bundaberg to totally clean out this build-up. If left neglected, calculus will erode the enamel of the tooth, creating tooth degeneration and an increased danger of periodontal (gum) disease.

Preventing tooth rot is as simple as keeping your mouth nice and clean…

You can eliminate tooth decay by cleaning and flossing daily along with regular teeth cleaning and check-ups, every 6 months. It is additionally important to be mindful of what you snack on, in particular foods such as lollies or caramels. Foods that are sticky and consist of high quantities of sugar create the best breeding ground for oral bacteria.

Avoid repeated or constant eating since doing so allows for mouth bacteria that generate the acids which obliterate the enamel. Avoid foods that are able to get stuck in between your teeth, instead, eat meals that are able to speed up saliva flow like fresh fruits and vegetables, non-sweet beverages and sugar-free gum.

Tips on cleaning properly…

When cleaning, it is significant to keep in mind to apply a soft-bristled toothbrush, as hard bristles can be damaging to your enamel and gums. Hold your brush at a 45 degree angle to help make certain that the gum line is massaged and cleaned out as well as your teeth. It is suggested to brush for approximately two minutes for the most powerful results.
