  • Defending our oral health

    Defending our oral health

    Saliva is the main body fluid which spreads the coronavirus when we talk, laugh, cough or sneeze. Physical distancing is important because the closer you are, the bigger the spray of large droplets while tiny droplets can reach you up to 4 metres away.

    But while saliva is a reflection of the body’s disease status, it’s also the defender of our oral health. Saliva stimulated when chewing is 60 times more powerful than resting saliva when it comes to neutralising acids from foods, plaque, dry mouth and reflux which damage teeth.

    So chew your meals well and chew sugarfree gum or raw foods between meals to stimulate saliva production for better teeth protection.

  • Protect your health with Vitamin D

    Protect your health with Vitamin D

    08 July 2020 . Posted by Laurelyn in Tips and Tricks

    Vitamin D is an important nutrient which promotes the growth and maintenance of teeth and bones thus helping to reduce the risk of bone loss and bone fractures.

    We acquire it from adequate exposure to sunlight and from sources such as oily fish, eggs, fortified milk and cod liver oil supplements.

    Vitamin D also offers antiviral protection from flu or colds so researchers are optimistic that it might be a way to moderate the severity of viruses like COVID-19.

    Along with hand hygiene and social distancing, Vitamin D could prove to be another easy, inexpensive way to protect our dental health and overall health.

  • Everyone's needs are different

    Everyone's needs are different

    There are so many options these days that choosing the right toothpaste can be confusing.

    Everyone’s dental needs are different so some toothpastes address gum disease and bad breath while others help tooth sensitivity.

    If you are an adult or teen at high risk for tooth decay there is a high strength fluoride toothpaste just for you called Neutrafluor5000 Plus, available at the pharmacy counter.

    You may be deemed a high risk decay patient by your dentist if:
    • You have a dry mouth with low or poor quality saliva
    • You have a diet with frequent sugary drinks or foods
    • You have sticky decay-causing bacteria
    • You have gum recession with some exposure of the root surfaces
    • You have braces for orthodontic treatment
    • You have dexterity challenges or cognitive decline

  • Clean your tongue

    Clean your tongue

    30 June 2020 . Posted by Laurelyn in Tips and Tricks

    Cleaning your tongue can be a frustrating experience if you have a gag reflex.
    However there are millions of bacteria that like to live on the tongue such as the bad breath bacteria.

    We now know that the COVID-19 organism can be prevalent on the tongue and as well as in the saliva.

    It’s important to clean the tongue so here are some suggestions to help:
    Use a flat tongue scraper which has a lower profile than a toothbrush
    • Open wide, take a big breath then scrape from the back of the tongue to the tip when you exhale
    Rinse the tongue scraper under running water after each stroke
    Store the tongue scraper upright to dry as a damp tongue scraper fosters germ growth

  • Limit your sugar intake

    Limit your sugar intake

    14 June 2020 . Posted by Laurelyn in Tips and Tricks

    Sugar in processed foods & drinks has replaced salt & fat as health’s public enemy #1 according to the UN World Health Assembly. It causes tooth decay and weight gain which leads to ill health.

    The WHO recommends limiting sugars to no more than 6 tsp or 24 grams a day.

    If you read the nutrition information label on a 375 ml can of Coke, you’ll see there are 40 grams of sugar in the can.

    Since 4 grams equals 1 teaspoon, the can contains 10 teaspoons of sugar. If you wouldn’t eat 10 teaspoons of sugar, would you drink it?
