Halloween Feature - Trick or Treat


With Hallowe’en coming up, we thought it would be great to help you with a few tips on how to keep your mouth and teeth as healthy as possible – especially with all those sweet treats coming along!

So, here we have a few very simple bits of advice that will help you keep your and your family’s mouths in tip-top condition!

Start children early!

It sounds simple but really, if you can get them into the habit of cleaning their teeth twice a day, you stand in much better chance of them understanding the importance of keeping their teeth clean for the rest of their lives.

Eat smart!

Whatever age you may be, wherever you may be in the world, a healthy diet is essential to a healthy body – and of course, teeth are included in that!

A balanced diet consists of whole foods -- including grains, nuts, fruits and vegetables, and dairy products. All these will provide you with the nutrients your body requires to be its strongest and healthiest.

Of course, if you can avoid sugary foods – all the better. When bacteria in the mouth breaks down the simple sugars that are found in sweets, cakes and sugary drinks, they produce acids that can erode tooth enamel. And once the enamel is damaged, there is a much higher chance of tooth decay setting in.

Fizzy drinks are also really damaging to your teeth but for slightly different reasons to sweets and sugary foods – the carbonation of the drinks (the fizz, if you like) actually increases acidity, therefore creating more chance for tooth enamel to be damaged.

Use fluoride toothpaste – but not too much…

By putting a pea-sized amount of toothpaste onto your children’s toothbrushes, you’ll be getting the optimum amount of fluoride to help protect their teeth.

Rinse or chew gum after meals!

Chewing gum after meals increases saliva – and saliva naturally washes bacteria away and neutralizes acid! Clever, eh?

It’s also worth mentioning that if you can rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash after eating, you can help prevent decay and gum problems.

It really doesn’t have to be difficult to take care of your teeth and your family’s teeth. So long as you think before you eat, take care to brush and floss regularly and visit your dentist frequently, your teeth can be in top health!

Sugary beverages and sugar food are harmful for your teeth. You can save your teeth from different types of bacteria. You should take brushing twice in a day. This habit can protect your teeth from harmful bacteria.

When the kids are redirected for school after spending some holidays then it is never always easy to adjust according to school environment for first couple of days.

Note 8 on 30 May 2017 12:55
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will hopefully avoid the fiasco that was the bane of the Galaxy Note 7. With the Korean giant looking to recoup its multi-billion dollar losses, we have created a wishlist of the features which will be seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. We are waiting with baited breath the release of the new device.
