Everything begins with a smile
Oral health is an issue that accompanies us from birth to old age. It is therefore never too early, or too late, to devote more attention to keeping your mouth healthy. In the following article we will provide tips for children and adults on how to keep their mouth and teeth clean, just in time for ‘World Oral Health Day’. Because we know: the first sign of a healthy mouth is a bright smile.
Food: Avoid Sweet & Sour
Betters oral health starts with a healthy diet. Foods that are too sour or contain simple sugars should be avoided. Bacteria in the mouth transform sugar into acid and this attacks tooth enamel. The result: Tooth Decay. White flour products such as pasta and bread also contain simple sugar, which is quickly converted by bacteria. Wholemeal products and raw vegetables, on the other hand, contain long-chain sugar. This aids tooth decay.Water is an essential means of eliminating acid in the mouth. Fruits and vegetables with a high water content increase the flow of saliva and washes the acid from the teeth. In addition, vegetables, such as a raw carrot, can strengthen the jaw muscles. Carrots also remove tartar and kill the bacteria that cause bad breath.
Even if this is usually an unpleasant subject, regular visits to the dentist are essential to ensure the best possible oral health. Especially for children, it is important to get in contact with the dentist at an early age. It is a common idea that the health of the milk teeth has no influence on adult teeth. But this is very wrong. Children should be checked twice a year, while healthy adults should be checked annually (unless the patient suffers from inflammatory gum diseases or similar).
And then there is the problem of getting your children to brush their teeth in the first place...
