Good Oral Health

Say ‘cheese!’

This is the commonly used confirmation call by many people to tell the camera operator that they are ready for the next picture. The primary reason for saying this word is to make your teeth visible, giving you the appearance of a great smile. Having crooked, stained teeth can cause you to keep your lips shut in social circles. Here are practical tips to help you maintain healthy white teeth.

5 Practical Ways Are:

1. Never go to bed before brushing your teeth

Any dentist in Bolton recommends that everyone should brush their teeth at least twice daily. Still, most people continue to neglect to brush their teeth at night. Note that ensuring your teeth are clean before you go to bed gets rid of the plaque and germs that accumulate during the day.

2. Use fluoride toothpaste

When choosing toothpaste, there are more important elements to consider not just the cost, flavors, and whitening power. Regardless of the toothpaste brand, you prefer, make sure it has fluoride. This component has come under scrutiny by experts worried about how it affects other areas of human health. However, fluoride remains a mainstay when it comes to oral health.

Note that fluoride strengthens your teeth and makes them resistant to decay. It works by fighting germs that cause teeth decay and offers a protective barrier for teeth. This is the main reason any Bolton dentist recommends the use of toothpaste containing fluoride.

3. Never ignore the power of mouthwash

Most adverts make mouthwash seem an integral part of good oral health, but most people ignore it simply because they don’t know how it works. Mouthwash reduces the acidity level in your mouth, re-mineralizes teeth, and can clean all hard-to-brush areas in and around your teeth and gums. It’s useful as an adjunct tool to bring everything in your mouth into a balance.

4. Brush properly

How you brush your teeth is as important as how often you brush them. Doing a poor job when it comes to brushing your teeth is as bad as failure to brush. Take the time to move the toothbrush in gentle and circular motions to remove the plaque. Accumulated plaque can harden, resulting in calculus buildup and early gum disease – gingivitis.

5. Flossing is important too

Most people who brush regularly ignore flossing. Well, flossing isn’t just about eliminating broccoli particles or the Chinese food fragments that may be stuck in between your pearly whites. It is a way of stimulating your gums, removing plaque, and lowering inflammation of gums. Consider flossing once a day.

6. Drink enough water

According to experts, water remains to be the best beverage for human health and oral health isn’t an exception. It’s recommended to drink water after every meal. In addition to other health benefits, drinking water after each meal washes out the sticky and acidic food particles and beverages.

7. Regular dental visits

Your daily oral habits are essential to your oral health. Even if you are the most dutiful flosser and brusher, you still need to see a dentist at least twice every year.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.
