Beautiful Girl - Close UpYour smile can say a lot about you. Not only does a bright smile and straight teeth look good in an aesthetic sense, the condition of your mouth can also tell us a lot about you health in general. Because of this, many of us strive to achieve the perfect smile, helped, in no small part by the influence of Hollywood stars and starlets. GB Hainsworth, who specialises in Invisalign in Cheshire takes us through his step by step guide to achieving the perfect smile.

Clean

Ok, so it sounds simple enough, but many people don’t brush their teeth as frequently or as thoroughly or they should. You should brush your teeth, ideally, three times a day, three minutes at a time and when you can after you have eaten. After consuming lots of sugar (although this should be avoided) though it may be tempting to brush straight away, you should leave it for a while as brushing too soon can actually weaken enamel and damage teeth by essentially rubbing the sugar into your teeth. At other times of the day, when brushing is not possible, use a sugar free gum after eating.

Apple A DayMaintain A Healthy Diet

We are told on a regular basis that a healthy diet is absolutely essential to keep off excess weight and to maintain proper function of all our vital organs and bodily functions, but your diet can also have a major effect on your teeth. Calcium is important to keep your teeth strong and healthy, but certain foods can also give you a whiter smile. Raw carrots, celery, popcorn and apples are all fantastic for keeping your mouth clean whereas you should avoid things such as black coffee and red wine.

waterChange Your Toothbrush

You should ensure that you change your toothbrush on a regular basis. Your toothbrush can potentially harbour lots of harmful bacteria which you are transferring back into your mouth every time you brush.

Drink Plenty of Water

Saliva is essential for maintaining the health of your teeth and so it’s vital that you maintain hydration throughout the day. Avoid sugary drinks and juice which is high in acidity too frequently, as, though they can be good for your overall health, they can actually do extensive damage to your teeth through damaging the enamel.
