Boost your brushing!

17th January 2018

 

You already know that brushing your teeth is all about keeping them clean and, doing so twice a day for two minutes each time will keep them at the optimum level of cleanliness. We always suggest brushing first thing in the morning and just before bed time for the best results. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits that a good home care regime can have…

Health

Over the years, the frequency of two minutes twice a day has been hailed as the optimum amount of time for effective cleaning to remove plaque from all areas of the mouth. Plaque build up can lead to gum disease, something that can go on to cause problems such as tooth loss. However, gum disease has also been scientifically linked to heart disease, stroke, and even diabetes. So for overall heath, reach for your toothbrush!

Breath

Let’s face it, no one wants to suffer with bad breath; not only can be embarrassing, it can hold you back from social and professional situations. To avoid halitosis, you need to keep bacteria under control by regularly brushing your teeth. You guessed it, brushing twice a day can keep the bad smells at bay!

Appearance

Everyone loves a Hollywood smile, those beautiful pearly white teeth are just the epitome of good health. Regular brushing can help to remove the natural staining that can build up everyday from the foods and drinks we consume.

Money

Keeping up with an effective toothbrushing regime at home can lead to improved oral health that will, hopefully, prevent you from suffering with problems like gum disease and dental decay. Good health means less problems, which then leads to requiring little or no dental treatment, so brushing your teeth can save you money in the long run!
