Review your oral health routine
Whether you think your oral health is in a good place or not, National Smile Month is the perfect opportunity to reassess your oral health routine.
Make sure you are brushing your teeth last thing at night and at one other time during the day with a fluoride toothpaste, and interdentally cleaning once a day. Cut down on how much and how often you have sugary foods and drinks, and visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
These few things are so easy, but it’s easy to get complacent. National Smile Month is a timely reminder to carry out these effective steps to great oral health.
Here's how you and your children can have healthy teeth and keep trips to the dentist to a minimum.
Brush your teeth twice a day
Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
Floss between your teeth
Floss or use an interdental brush every day to remove food, debris and plaque lodged between your teeth.
Cut down on sugar, and other lifestyle tips
Have a healthy lifestyle, including eating well, not smoking and limiting your alcohol and sugar intake. It's good for your whole body, including your teeth, gums and mouth.
Brush baby teeth as soon as they come through
Start brushing a baby's teeth as soon as they come through.
Get children into a teeth-cleaning routine
Help your child have healthy teeth for life by having a good dental health routine.
Straighten crooked teeth with braces
More and more teenagers (and some adults) are having braces and orthodontics to straighten their teeth.
Have regular dental check-ups
Have regular check-ups with your dentist. Don't put off going for a check-up. Detecting problems early can mean they're easier to treat.
If problems aren't treated, they may lead to damage that's harder, or even impossible, to repair.
Don't delay dental treatments
There are a wide range of dental treatments available. Some, such as fillings and root canal treatment, are readily available on the NHS.
Others, such as cosmetic dentistry, are only available on the NHS in certain circumstances.
Why should I visit the dental team regularly?
It is always better to prevent problems rather than have to cure them when they happen. If you visit your dental team regularly you will need less treatment and they will spot any problems earlier, making any treatment easier.
