Three Tips to Taking Care of Your Teeth and Gums in Liverpool

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

At Liverpool Dental Spa, we’re always keen for our patients to enjoy optimum oral health and we strongly believe that prevention is better than cure. If you’re hoping to protect your teeth and gums in 2018, here are three top tips to take on board:

  1. Learn to brush properly: if you’re guilty of cutting your teeth cleaning sessions short or your enamel is worn because you brush too hard, now is the time to hone your brushing skills and start enjoying the benefits of effective cleaning. Spend two minutes every morning and evening brushing your teeth, taking care to cover the gum line and each individual surface of every single tooth. Use a timer to make sure you brush for long enough and be gentle. If you’re too firm, this can damage the enamel and increase the risk of sensitivity and cavities.
  2. Clean between your teeth: brushing is brilliant, but it can only do so much. To enjoy a more thorough, deeper clean, it’s important to clean between the teeth. This will help you remove bacteria and bits of food and prevent plaque formation. You can floss or use inter-dental brushes to clean the tiny cracks and gaps between your teeth.
  3. Book a dental appointment: if you haven’t been to the dentist for at least 6 months, it’s a good idea to make it your mission to keep up to date with dental checks in 2018. A check-up is painless and it only takes around 5 minutes. If you see your dentist on a regular basis, you can lower your risk of developing gum disease and decay by up to 60 percent. Call us now to make an appointment!

Another update from Anna on her invisalign journey

Monday, March 5th, 2012

Hi everyone, it’s Anna here with another update about my progress with Invisalign.

So far I’m on tray three of Invisalign which I must admit, have been hurting a lot more than the previous two sets!

I decided to put them in on Monday evening, so they had time to settle in whilst I went to sleep and so that I wouldn’t feel any pain.  I couldn’t believe it, after brushing my teeth and getting out the new trays, I couldn’t even get them on as they were so tight! I thought I would have to go back to the dentist and tell them something was wrong, but luckily,  with a bit of persistence I managed to get them on..

I noticed a remarkable difference straight away and with these new set of aligners I could feel them fitting snugly against my teeth, in comparison to the previous set which by now had become rather slack.

Overall I’ve found that this set have been a lot more difficult to take off as well. This suggests to me that my teeth will be shifting quite a bit during this set. The good news is that they aren’t hurting as much as they did on the first day of putting them in, so they are moving!

Next week I’m going back to my dentist for another check-up appointment and to pick up my next set of aligners. I believe at some point soon I will be seeing a preview of how my teeth look I’m so excited to see my progress!

Until next time, with tender teeth
