How to keep your teeth healthy and pain free for life.
The health of your teeth is fundamental to your quality of life. If you look after them properly it is possible to still have a full set of teeth into your nineties. To achieve this you need to have good oral hygiene all the way from childhood through to old age and also visit your dentist regularly.
Rebuild and remineralise your teeth.
Every time you consume acidic foods or beverages such as fruit juices and fizzy drinks, the white enamel surfaces of your teeth dissolve slightly. Your body has a natural mechanism to rebuild the teeth using the minerals in your saliva. However, if you do not allow this natural process enough time then additional sources are required to replace the lost minerals and rebuild the teeth surfaces.
These minerals can come from high quality toothpastes or oral mouthwash. Scientists have shown that using a fluoride toothpaste will provide protection against the effect of acidic drinks. They also believe that a low level constant supply of fluoride to the tooth surfaces would be beneficial – this is a key, unique feature of the newly released toothpaste.
Protecting Enamel with BioMinF.
Enamel loss is one of the main causes of sensitivity. Which occurs when the hard, protective covering of your teeth is eroded away, exposing the more yellow, softer, porous underlying tissue called dentine.
Enamel loss can also result from receding gums or a combination of age, diet, brushing technique, tooth grinding, chips, fractures etc.
Protect Enamel Now.
Once the protective enamel is lost it cannot be replaced. The fine, open pores of the dentine (that are invisible to the naked eye) act as a pathway to the nerves of your teeth, transmitting hot and cold sensations. If you suffer from this type of discomfort, it may be reduced or eliminated by building a new protective layer to cover these open pores. Regular use of BioMinF may provide such a barrier and allow you to once again enjoy your favourite foods and drinks.
Prevent Acid Attacks.
Throughout the day a film builds up on your teeth. This film absorbs sugars and creates acid that attacks your teeth and leads to tooth decay.
To avoid this you must remove the film by brushing your teeth at least twice a day for at least two minutes. This routine may help you prevent tooth decay which affects 31% of the adult population today.
Perfect your Dental Routine.
Follow these important tips to help you with your dental routine – before breakfast and last thing at night:
Apply a 1cm long bead of toothpaste to your toothbrush
Place your toothbrush on the outer surfaces of your teeth, tilting the brush at an angle against the gum line.
Using short and gentle brush strokes, in a vertical up-and-down action, pushing the bristles away from the gum line. Clean the outer surfaces of your upper and lower teeth, then the inner surfaces, and finally across the surfaces of your back teeth.Be sure to pay extra attention to any hard-to-reach areas.
After two minutes of brushing, swirl the foamy toothpaste around your mouth for 30 seconds, and spit out the excess into the sink.Avoid rinsing your mouth out with water! Rinsing washes away the active ingredients of the toothpaste often before they have had a chance to work. Walk away and enjoy the fresh, minty taste in your mouth.
Don’t drink anything acidic for at least 30 minutes after brushing otherwise it’ll undo much of your good work!
