Brush Up On Your Oral Health In National Smile Month
May 13 marked the start of National Smile Month, an annual campaign run each year by the Oral Health Foundation. It’s designed to help share messages about how to take care of our mouths and ensure we all have good oral health.
The tips are incredibly simple, and things that many of us probably already know. But it doesn’t hurt to be reminded of some of the basics, like making sure you always brush your teeth last thing at night and at least once more throughout the day using a fluoride toothpaste.
You should also make sure you visit your dentist in Guildford as often as they recommend. And the final tip is to reduce the amount of sugar your consume.
We all know that it can be difficult to get children to take proper care of their teeth, but it’s essential that they get into good oral health habits from a young age.
Take a look at some of our tips for how to get even the most challenging of children to brush their teeth properly each day. We recommend using things like their favourite song to help time how long you’re brushing for and as an incentive for them to allow you to brush their teeth.
You should also let children try brushing their own teeth, even if you don’t think they’ll do the best job. It’s important to give them some independence, and it could be just what you need to engage them with the process. They’ll also be learning good techniques that they can use as they get older.
