Sonicare for your teeth!

I use to use a electric toothbrush a couple of years ago but when I went to university it was easier to use a bog standard tooth brush. Last Christmas I specifically asked for an electric toothbrush as I'm pretty sure my teeth are way to sensitive and prone to cavities so it was time for an action plan. As an adult who pretty much wants healthy, white, pretty teeth like most of the population. The best way to to have great teeth as an adult is to combat at a young age with a great routine (if only I had a time machine!) as someone who has had cavities and problems with my wisdom teeth as  of late, I wish I had flossed more when I was little and taken more care but it's not too late as I floss every night, use mouthwash and now an electric toothbrush, hopefully my next trip to the dentist won't be a painful experience!

"Getting kids to brush their teeth properly can be a bit of a headache. Much of the time they don’t want to do it, as they struggle to understand how important it is. But as you get older and the threat of dental problems becomes more real, you soon realise how crucial it is. Having to endure fillings or the dreaded root canal surgery is not nice, but there is a really simple way to avoid it. Keep your teeth free from plaque and your gums free from disease, and you’ll be on the right track to having healthy teeth for life.

This is easier said than done, you may be thinking to yourself. But it is, in fact, quite simple, with a few small changes to your routine. The most important of these is your brush. Change from a manual brush to a modern electric one, like the new Philips Sonicare, and you could remove up to twice as much plaque as with regular brushing. That’s good news for you and your dentist. Sonicare brushes will gently stimulate the gums, helping them to stay free from nasty gum disease. They’ll also help to whiten teeth and keep your breath fresh for longer.

The importance of flossing
 - As well as brushing, you’ll need to incorporate flossing into your daily schedule. Floss at least once a day after brushing, to help remove plaque from all those hard-to-reach areas between the teeth and around the base of the gums.

Next to using the right toothbrush, this is the most important part of any dental hygiene routine, and one that dentists can’t recommend enough.

You’ll also need to watch what you eat. That’s not to say that you can’t enjoy the odd treat, but food which is high in sugar and acid – like sweets and fruit juices – can wear away the enamel, causing damage to teeth.

Make sure you brush regularly, and after eating or drinking if possible, to keep your teeth in tip top condition. It doesn’t take much to look after your teeth – just a few minutes a day and you can keep them healthy and beautifully clean. If only there was a way of explaining that to children and getting them to understand. One thing at a time perhaps!"
