Protect Your Teeth – Festive Season

The festive period isn’t just an enemy of your waistline, over-indulgence during the Christmas break can lead to major setbacks with your teeth and gums. If overhauling your oral hygiene regimen is at the top of resolutions for the New Year, why not see how The Berkeley Clinic can help you meet your goals. With an expert team of oral health professionals, we are your go-to destination for when you’re looking to get your teeth in order.

Talk to the team today about our treatment plan, from teeth whitening solutions and smile makeovers, to Invisalign braces and dental implants for those more noticeable cosmetic woes. In the meantime, we’ve put together a few tips on how to make those first few steps towards a healthy, happy smile in time for the New Year.

Make flossing a foundation of your new oral hygiene routine

Floss-once-a-day
For decades, we’ve been told the benefits of flossing, but many have yet to take up flossing as a cornerstone of daily dental upkeep. Conventional brushing only provides you access to about two-thirds of surface area of the tooth, meaning there’s always going to be stray square inches that are left untouched and in need in desperate need of a clean. These unattended areas of the mouth are hotbeds for bacteria build up, particularly in the problem areas of the jaw where cavities are known to develop and gum disease is more likely to make a foothold before causing unsightly bleeding and painful inflammation. Problems within the mouth can lead to a whole host of problems away from the teeth and gums themselves, with a raised risk of heart disease, arthritic conditions and diabetes. Even just a short spell flossing can make a huge improvement, so fit it into any available space in your schedule and start perfecting your floss techniques from today.

Brush twice a day, every day

No matter how simple or substantial your dental hygiene ritual, it’s not going to make the difference you want unless you’re consistent. Make sure you’re brushing your teeth at least twice a day to keep on top of the minimum of maintenance needed to stave off more serious conditions from taking hold causing the need for specialist dental treatment. You’ll always want to make sure you’re brushing your teeth for a minimum of two minutes, every time you’re stood there in front of the vanity mirror.

Never miss a step in your schedule

It can be all too easy to miss a few brushes in your schedule, but if you’re one who is prone to missing out on evening brushes, make sure this is a key area of focus. Bacteria can cause huge deposits of acid to form across the teeth throughout the night if left unattended, while a decreased rate of saliva protection while you sleep means there’s a perfect storm of conditions going on within the mouth that might lead to common dental complaints down the line. Give yourself a real shot at maintaining a beaming smile with minimal effort just by ensuring that evening brushing session is never skipped in the future.

Stamp out sugar

Sugar is a killer of healthy smiles. Not only does excess sugar stand as a key contributor to the build-up of bacteria, it can ultimately lead to the formation of cavities and start-up of teeth decay in otherwise healthy mouths. Cutting out excess levels of sugar is not only a smart move your waistline, the effects will be felt immediately within your mouth. Consider swapping out high-risk foods for new ones if you worry you’ll fail to maintain your new food plan and eating schedule.

Mouth Cancer Action Month

Oral cancer can appear in a variety of forms and can affect all parts of the mouth including throat, lips, tongue and cheeks. You don’t have to be a smoker to develop oral cancer. The statistics suggest that it can affect anyone. Last year alone oral cancer was diagnosed to 6,700 people in the UK. Fortunately it can be prevented if you visit your dentist every 6 months for a regular dental check-up.

At the Berkeley Clinic in Glasgow we carry out oral cancer examinations as a part of your dental routine check-up. We believe that the prevention is always better than a cure, because it is possible to prevent mouth cancer if it is caught early enough. If you have any questions contact us on 0141 564 1900 or send us an email.

Our team supports Mouth Cancer Action Month awareness campaign every year. This year we are taking part in #BlueLipSelfie photo campaign. You can view our picture gallery if you visit our social media platforms on Facebook and Twitter.

Mouth Cancer Action Month is a great campaign that raises awareness of oral cancer issues and encourages people to get checked out in order to prevent themselves from getting ill. You can avoid mouth cancer by living healthier life and visiting your dentist every 6 months.
