Use these tips and tricks to keep a great smile
At Limestone Dental we know how to keep your smile sparkling and your teeth on point. From being one of Ipswich’s oldest and most trusted dentists we wanted to share some tips and tricks to look after your dental health.
Brush twice a day
The best protection against tooth decay and gum disease.
Clean between your teeth
Remember brushing does not remove the plaque in between
your teeth – use floss or interdental brushes.
Visit your dentist
Regular check ups do more than just check for tooth decay,
they also check for oral cancer and gum disease.
Spit, don’t rinse
Spit out excess toothpaste after brushing, but don’t rinse out your mouth.
This washes away the fluoride that helps protect your teeth.
Limit your snacks
Each time you eat foods containing sugar you feed the
bacteria in your mouth that cause tooth decay.
Drinking fluoridated tap water after meals helps flush out left over
food particles from the mouth and strengthens your teeth.
Protect your pearly whites
Play contact sports? Ask your dentist about custom-made
mouthguards. They protect your teeth better than store bought varieties.
