The Anatomy of obtaining a perfect smile consists of Gently and thoroughly brushing each side of every tooth and the gums. It should take about 2minutes to do them all.
A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. ~Author Unknown
Typically, we think of our teeth as a separate entity from our overall health. However, research is finding that oral health is more important than we might think and is often a window to other health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Clean your teeth well twice a day, basically before and after breakfast and preparing to go to sleep at night. After meal consumptions it is good idea to drink water and if dessert is added to wash out your mouth in order to neutralise the acids.
Use a small toothbrush with soft bristles. Hard and medium bristled toothbrushes can damage teeth and gums.
Use fluoride toothpaste. Rinsing your mouth will wash out too much of the protective fluoride. ‘Spit, don’t rinse’.
Avoid cleaning your teeth soon after drinking acid drinks such as lemon juice. The acid in drinks softens the enamel, and cleaning can scratch the enamel while it is soft. Rinse your mouth with water, wait for about half an hour, then clean your teeth.
Dental floss cleans between your teeth, At Dr. Turnier’s office he provides oral hygiene instructions in order to show you how to use floss properly.
