  • Are you a gum gardener?

    Are you a gum gardener?

    Like noxious weeds, harmful germs grow along the gumline. And if you don’t do a spot of gardening, they can be a real danger to your breath and gum health.

    If you use an electric toothbrush with a round brush head, that’s great because it will do all the work. The key to brushing well is to guide the brush slowly from tooth to tooth, following the contours of the tooth, curve of the gums and tipping slightly in-between the teeth.

    So get rid of the weeds and your mouth will look and smell its best.

    E-cigarettes have intriguing flavours like pina colada and are a popular trend right now. But how harmful are they from a dental standpoint?

    The devices are battery powered and heat liquids laced with nicotine which contacts the mouth at its hottest. This may result in dry mouth, dry cough, mouth ulcerations or even chemical burns.

    And then there’s the addictive nature of the nicotine, a vasoconstrictor which raises blood pressure.

    Is it really worth a try?

    Townsville’s fluoridated tap water is the cheapest, easiest and tastiest mouthwash around.

    Everyone knows that it prevents tooth decay by making the enamel more resistant to plaque acids.

    But fluoride also has antibacterial properties which reduce plaque activity and plaque acid production.

    So sip, swish for 1 minute around the mouth and between the teeth then swallow after meals, snacks and smoko.

    Kids may be at risk for tooth decay due to inadequate parental supervision, according to a UK health organization.

    While risks from sugary foods and drinks are well-known, the lack of brushing supervision is also seen as a risk factor.

    Brushing your child’s teeth twice a day from an early age is an effective way for parents to reduce the risk of cavities.

    And even after the age of seven, it’s wise for parents to check on kids to ensure they do it correctly and for 2 minutes.
