Fruit sugars mean tucking into a bowlful can cause problems. But pick the right salad and you can keep your teeth gleaming. Strawberries and apples both contain malic acid, which is a natural tooth cleanser, says dentist Dr Richard Marques, of Wimpole Street Dental.
As well as brushing we all need to carry out some form of interdental cleaning (between the teeth). Conventional flossing is a great way to do this, but some people find it too time consuming and fiddly. The new air-floss machine uses air and water under pressure to clean between your teeth. Using this method it is possible to clean all the spaces between your teeth in approximately 30 seconds. We have these available in our clinic and can demonstrate how to use them effectively.This will improve the health of your teeth and gums and leave your mouth feeling fresher!
