It is important to find a dentist you are comfortable with. When looking for a new dentist, ask for a personal recommendation. NHS services can be accessed in Bristol by contacting NHS direct 08454546. The Bristol Dental Practice offers gentle, affordable, quality, private dental care. We accept new patients with or without dental insurance. Never neglect your teeth for a long time and aim to visit the dentist twice a year.
After passing 50, abstain from using alcohol based mouthwash. Adults may experience sensitivities which can be increased when you use a mouthwash that contains alcohol. A fluoride rinse can help with sensitivity. A good practice when brushing is to spit out the toothpaste, but do not rinse.
If you are aware of problems with your teeth or gums it is important to seek advice swiftly. Delaying treatment could cause greater damage to your teeth. It will cost less if you see a dentist about a problem when you first notice it rather than waiting until the problem gets worse.
Tooth brushing needs attention to be effective. Make sure you do not brush too intensely and do not forget to brush your tongue. Always help a child aged 10 and under with their brushing. When you brush your teeth make sure to brush all tooth surfaces inside and outside. Your gums need to be massaged and cleaned. Check how hard the toothbrush bristles are. Medium texture is ideal. Hard bristles can wear the enamel. Soft bristles may not remove all the debris.
Monitor the position of your gum lime. This is the most vulnerable part of a tooth as it is where the nerves may be exposed. Some gum shrinkage is normal as we age, but if you are concerned or experiencing pain, seek advice from your dentist.
To maintain healthy teeth it is important to have a healthy diet. Restrict how frequently sugar is consumed, be aware of hidden sugars, and how acidic drinks are. Not smoking is the best route to a healthier mouth.
Whenever you experience discomfort in your mouth, visit a dentist. There may be an abscess which is an infection of either the tooth or gum, and will get worse if left. A dentist will look for mouth cancer as part of an examination.
If you want whiter teeth or cosmetic improvements talk to your dentist. There are many swift, simple options to improve your smile and boost your confidence.
