A Healthy Routine for Whiter Teeth

Our world is changing with social media demanding the best of us at every turn and media inundating us with messages of bright white teeth and a radiant smile. While there is nothing wrong with wanting to look your best, when it comes to your mouth however, behind every effort at looking good should be a focus on your oral health routine.

Teeth whitening in Calgary

At Go Dental, our dental experience means you can count on our dentists and hygienists in Calgary for expert dental procedures including a comprehensive array of restorative treatments and cosmetic dentistry services. To help you get the brightest, whitest, and healthiest smile you can have, here are a few fundamental principles you should consider for your basic tooth care routine:

  • Brush your teeth, gums, and tongue when you first get out of bed and before you get back in at night for two minutes (use a timer if necessary) in order to ensure that your teeth are cleaned and brushed thoroughly. 
  • Toothbrushes and or the head of your electric toothbrush need to be replaced at least every two to three months or when the edges start showing signs of wear. 
  • Floss at least once per day or if possible every after meal. This is an effective method to clean between the teeth and clear away food debris that could cause decay and halitosis. 
  • Diet plays a role so cut out red wine, coffee, black tea, or smoking cigarettes or cigars, and other culprits that stain your teeth. Choose foods that are firm or crisp and that help clean teeth as they’re eaten like apples, raw carrots, or celery.

Then there is the multitude of teeth whitening products that are available for use. Teeth whitening trays and strips are known to be the most efficient options for intense and effective whitening according to dentists because they help keep the peroxide solution (whitening agent) against the teeth for a sufficient amount of time to help whiten the teeth four to five shades.

Being diligent about your oral health care and visiting the dentist every six months for professional teeth cleaning and checkups can prevent plaque accumulation, may help reverse gum problems, and provide you with that healthier whiter smile you’re looking for to ensure your best overall oral health.
