A third of adults in the UK do not brush their teeth for long enough because they get distracted or are too busy.

Running late or rushing to get ready are the main reasons why many people cut their tooth-brushing time short, followed by getting distracted by children or phones.

Women are far more likely to get distracted than men while people in their sixties were more likely to brush for the recommended two minutes according to a survey by the British Dental Health Foundation.

Not brushing your teeth long enough means that your teeth are not cleaned adequately which can lead to tooth decay or gum disease. Everyday care is very vital and your toothbrush is one of the best weapons against decay and gum disease.

It is recommended that everyone brushes their teeth for two minutes twice a day, especially at bedtime using a flouride toothpaste. In addition to brushing, it is recommended that you floss your teeth or use interdental brushes to remove the debris from between your teeth.

Just wanted to say thank you very much for a job well done on my bottom/front teeth. I am very happy with the outcome and can smile without trying to hide them or feel embarrassed.

Saliva is a complex fluid which performs many different tasks.  Produced by salivary glands in our mouths, it is a natural cleanser, helping to wash away food remnants, bacteria and plaque.  

It helps to neutralise acids which can be harmful to our teeth, and forms a protective barrier on the outer layer of our teeth.

It also lends a hand in counteracting infections and makes bacteria less likely to stick to our teeth and gums.  It lubricates our tongue, mouth and throat, making it easy to eat, swallow,talk and breathe.  It also supplies us with calcium and phosphate which help to keep our teeth strong and healthy.

Unfortunately as the years take over our saliva production may slow down, which can eventually lead to Dry Mouth Syndrome and the common problem which comes with it is sore throat and difficulty in swallowing or speaking.

Treatment can vary according to the severity and cause of the condition.  Regular sips of water can help, so can chewing sugar-free gum or low calorie sugar-free foods such as celery or carrots.

If you suffer from a dry mouth, please talk to us next time you visit so we can discuss the best way of helping you

Avoid acidic drinks between meals – smoothies, juices, cordials, concentrates and diet drinks can erode the enamel of the teeth.

 The answer?

Drink water or milk.
