Dental Diet Tips

  • Chew sugar-free gum after eating or drinking, especially sugary foods, to help protect your teeth and gums in-between meals. 
  • Wait an hour after eating or drinking anything before brushing as then enamel will be softened and you could be brushing away tiny particles. 
  • A varied diet that is rich in vitamins, minerals, and fresh fruit and vegetables can help to prevent gum disease. 
  • Finishing a meal with a cube of cheese is a great, and tasty, way to reduce the effect of acids from the foods damaging your teeth. 
  • Avoid snacking and try to only have sugary foods and drinks at mealtimes, reducing the time your teeth come under attack. 
  • If you have a sweet tooth try to choose sugar-free sweets and drinks which contain xylitol as it can actively contribute to your oral health. 

Children's Oral Health

  • Weaning your baby off the bottle early can help avoid developing dental problems. 
  • All the children up to three years old should use a smear of toothpaste with a fluoride level of no less that 1000pp (parts per million). After three years old, they should use a toothpaste that contains 1350 ppm - 1500 ppm. 
  • Parents should try and supervise your children's tooth brushing until they are about 7 years old. 
  • Take your child to the dentist early, as soon as their teeth start to appeal, this will help them get used to the sights, sounds and smells of a dental practice. 
  • Use a timer or brush along to a song to ensure your children are brushing for the correct amount of time. 
  • Use a reward chart to track your children's brushing habits and get them actively involved in brushing their teeth. 
  • Use disclosing tablets to show areas of your children's mouth which may need better brushing.
