Here at Ordo, we’re all about good brushing technique and a great routine. Modern lifestyles can be super hectic, but there are no excuses when it comes to your oral care. This is where the Oral Health Foundation comes in with their National Smile Month campaign. The month of events and educational activities across the country starts today and we’re proudly supporting it (obviously)! Along with this amazing charity work, we want to fix bad habits and promote a better approach to oral care.
Every year, the National Smile campaign aims to improve UK’s oral health and raise awareness of the important health issues. This year, the key messages are:
- Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste
Evening brushing is the most important and we will keep reminding you about it! Night brushing is vital because this is when plaque bacteria builds up the most. If you want to know some more rules you should follow to improve your oral care routine, read our post ‘Things you might not know, but should, about your oral hygiene' here.
- Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks
Everyone knows eating too much sugar is bad for your teeth. But it’s not the sugar itself which is the worst. It’s the harmful bacteria in our mouths that eats the sugars we eat. It takes energy from sugars and produces acids. These acids can damage your tooth enamel, cause cavities to form or even an erosion to occur.
- Visit your dentist regularly, as often as recommended
Ah, yes… The Dentist! We bet it’s your least favourite appointment but waiting for a tooth pain to drag you to the dentist’s chair isn’t best practice. You should visit your dentist at least twice a year. Not only is it the best way to prevent plaque from building up, but only your dentist will be able to notice the first symptoms of any other more serious health issues.
These are pretty much the most important things you should know about your oral health but remember: oral health is a part of your overall health. Not taking care of it will only hurt your mouth (and wallet).
