Welcome to a guide for maintaining a healthy smile and gums, focusing on seven daily habits brought to you by Calm and Gentle Dental Care:

Brush Twice a Day

Develop the habit of brushing for two minutes, morning and night, using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to keep your teeth in excellent condition.

Morning Brush for Fresh Breath

Combat plaque buildup and tartar by incorporating a morning brush routine. This simple practice contributes to a fresh and inviting smile.

Avoid Overbrushing

Be cautious not to over-brush; limit your brushing to twice a day for a total of four minutes to protect enamel. This helps prevent tooth sensitivity and pain.

Gentle Brushing Technique: Practice a gentle brushing technique, akin to polishing an eggshell, to safeguard enamel, particularly for children and teens with softer enamel.

Floss Daily: Make flossing a daily ritual to complement your brushing routine, removing particles, preventing plaque buildup, and reducing the risk of tartar formation.

Flossing Before or After Brushing: The sequence of flossing and brushing doesn’t matter; consistency does. Embrace a comprehensive oral care routine for lasting benefits.

Limit Fizzy Drink Consumption: “Sip All Day, Get Decay” serves as a reminder to minimise soft drink intake to protect your teeth from decay, stains, and structural erosion.

Incorporate these habits into your daily life, and remember to schedule regular dental check-ups for a confident and radiant smile.
