Did you know that if you brush your teeth but don’t floss, you’ll only be getting 60% of your teeth clean? This is because 40% of your tooth surfaces are in between your teeth, where bits of food can easily get caught. Flossing helps you reach in between the back teeth, which are difficult to brush. If you don’t floss bacteria can build up and cause plaque, bad breath and infection. By keeping your mouth healthy you’ll also keep your breath fresher – perfect for all those congratulation kisses!

5 top tips for healthy teeth and gums

Dental Hygienist Mhari Coxon gives us her five top tips for having a perfect smile on your wedding day…

Brush your teeth well

Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Using a Sonicare toothbrush helps to ensure you brush well and for long enough every time.

AirFloss the teeth you want to keep

Cleaning in between the teeth is important for tooth, gum and general health. Try to clean in between the teeth once a day every day.

You are what you eat

Eating a healthy balanced diet is important for our health generally. Watch for hidden sugars in food. Honey, dried fruit and syrups are also high in sugar. It’s best to keep sweet treats as part of a meal and to drink plain water between meals.

Visit your dentist regularly and ask for advice

If no one has ever shown you, next time you visit your dentist, take your toothbrush and ask them to show you how to use it well. It really can make an amazing difference with no extra effort or time.

Don’t brush after eating

When we eat, our mouth becomes acidic for around 20 minutes. If we brush in this time, we can cause wear on our tooth surface permanently.
