Invaluable Advice from HealthCare4All for better Oral Hygiene

HealthCare4All Recommend The Best Products That Keep Your Teeth Healthy & Clean!

What is Good Oral Hygiene?

We all want a lovely smile, with clean straight teeth, and a mouth that’s healthy and fresh!  Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth not only enable you to look and feel good, they make it possible to eat and speak properly. Good oral health is important to your overall well-being.

The Main causes of Gum disease and tooth decay are mainly plaque and tartar build up. Good oral hygiene helps to prevent or delay dental erosion. 

If your gums do hurt or bleed while brushing or flossing, or you are experiencing persistent bad breath, see your dentist. Any of these conditions may indicate a problem.

Your dentist or hygienist can show you how to practice good oral hygiene techniques and can help point out areas of your mouth that may require extra attention during brushing and flossing.

Daily preventive care, including proper brushing and flossing, will help stop problems before they develop and is much less painful, expensive, and worrisome than treating conditions that have been allowed to progress.

So this week, I want to show you some of the best products that HealthCare4All recommend for you to keep your Teeth and mouth healthy and clean!

 

Manual or electric toothbrush?

When it comes to choosing between a manual or electric toothbrush, it’s a personal choice – they’re equally effective at removing plaque and debris if used correctly. Both types need to be kept in tip-top condition. Over time, bristles become frayed and worn, so remember to replace the toothbrush or brush head every three months.

A rechargeable or battery electric toothbrush appeals to all ages and it’s a real winner for young children. While the kids are attracted to the bright colours, the electric motion of the toothbrush does the job effectively.

We recommend the Oral Pro 5000 Smart Guided Electric Toothbrush

This is no ordinary toothbrush: the huge box it comes in contains a unique wireless Smart Guide device that connects to the brush wirelessly and monitors your brushing.

It then gives you a dentist-like report on how you brushed and how you should be brushing to remove all that plaque. It has a timer on it so you monitor length of brush. It even documents the pressure with which you apply it to your teeth. If you put excessive pressure on your teeth, the red pressure sensor light appears.

It has several brushing modes including deep clean, whitening and massage. It also comes with a handy travel case and a wall mount so you can position your SmartGuide on the wall next to your bathroom mirror.

Oral B claims that the handset pulsates 40,000 times and rotates 8,800 times per minute to remove twice as much plaque as an ordinary manual toothbrush. In fact, it’s the only toothbrush approved with a Platinum rating by the British Dental Association. Its costs £99.98 from HealthCare4All

For the kids we recommend the Oral-B Advanced Power Kids Toothbrush  or the Disney Princess Toothbrush

Cleaning Between Teeth

Dentists suggest that not only should we brush twice a day but also floss daily. Removing plaque between your teeth requires regular flossing at least once a day after brushing.  There are two ways of doing this, either using an electric irrigator or floss picks.

A wonderfully reliable and effective oral irrigator, the Panasonic EW1411  undergoes strict quality control and testing before the units are released from the factory.
The unit sits neatly on the re charger base which can be placed on the bathroom counter top/shelf or wall-mounted if preferred. This product has been designed to give years of good service.

We also love the Oral B Tooth Glide Floss Picks. These floss picks are amazing, they are so easy to use. I always found it difficult to get to some of my teeth when flossing, also I seemed to cut off the circulation in my fingers using the standard wire floss! These Glide picks are my personal favourite. It’s an ingenious design which allows you to place the floss between the teeth at the right angle without any trouble. You can even adjust the tension in the floss by squeezing the special area of the handle.

Advancements in dental care technology means that taking care of our pearly whites is easier now than ever before. However, when it comes to encouraging our children to brush their teeth regularly, there is still an element of: “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make the horse drink”.

Tooth decay in decline

A recent government report shows that due to good dental care education and practice, tooth decay among children is in decline. However, there is still more work to be done. In the article, Director of Dental Public Health at PHE -Dr Sandra White – is pleased with the findings and states:

“This is great news. However, one child with tooth decay is one too many and there is still much inequality in dental health around the country. Tooth decay is painful and too often results in teeth extraction, some under general anesthetic.”

“This is further evidence that we can stop tooth decay in its tracks. Limiting sugary food and drink, supporting children to brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and regular trips to the dentist, will help prevent a great many more children suffering at the hands of tooth decay.”

To encourage good practice in oral care, dental care product suppliers -HealthCare4all, look at ways to bring some fun into dental care education:

Boiled egg and cola experiment

A great experiment to demonstrate to children how sugar affects teeth that can be done at home. All you need to do is allow a boiled egg to soak overnight in cola. Next morning, ask your child to brush the egg with a toothbrush and toothpaste. As the discoloration is removed, ask your children how they think the stain got there and why they think brushing their teeth is so important after eating.

Happy faces at meal times

Making meal times fun is a great opportunity to teach children the value of eating healthily. Ask your children to form happy faces from healthy foods such as carrots, broccoli and slices of fruit. Take a photo of the finished article and perhaps even attach to the fridge. Afterwards, engage your children in a discussion on the benefits of eating healthy foods against eating sweets.

Tooth Brushing Chart

A great way to teach your children the importance of brushing daily is to draw a face with a large smiling mouth and hang on a poster board. Each day after your child has brushed their teeth they can stick a dried white navy been into the mouth. This is repeated each day until the mouth is filled completely and is left with a brilliant white smile.

HealthCare4all supplies dental care products for all ages.  They provide a fun range of electric toothbrushes for children that bring characters from Disney into the washroom:

Braun Oral-B Stages Kids Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush FROZEN:£29.98

This children’s toothbrush makes tooth brushing fun with the characters from Frozen. The Extra soft bristles cater for sensitive young teeth and gums. It is compatible with the Disney magic timer app by Oral B. The timer educates children to brush for the recommended two minutes, thus ingraining a life-long best practice.

Braun Oral-B Advance Power Kids Toothbrush Disney Cars: £13.99  Teeth brushing fun-time for 5 year olds and older with the characters from Disney’s Cars. This children’s toothbrush is moderately priced and has advanced power. The brushing heads are replaceable and are designed to clean chewing surfaces.

Why Opt for Electric Toothbrushes

A cursory look at the personal care and grooming sections of department stores and groceries would point towards the ready availability of electric toothbrushes, a sate which has led many in asking what the advantages of such products are.

Far from simply being glorified toothbrushes, electric toothbrushes actually do boast a range of upsides over their more manual counterparts, delving into better cleaning capacities, better teeth whitening benefits and more.

Here’s a quick take on why one should opt for the use of electric toothbrushes.

The Functional Benefits of Electric Toothbrushes

As an oral hygiene implement, the functional premise behind electric toothbrushes are no different than the standard variety of toothbrushes: they are used in cleaning one’s teeth, gums and mouth.

Basically toothbrushes that are designed with a built-in motor, electric toothbrushes generally work on a rotation/oscillation action, yielding to a more enhanced for cleaning factor that isn’t easily accomplished when talking about the use of standard toothbrushes.

While it can be argued that standard toothbrushes actually do well in cleaning out bits of food stuck in between teeth, electric toothbrushes have long been proven to be more effective in the removal of plaque, nipping dental concerns which arise from plaque build up at the bud.

An independent study conducted in 2005 looked into this electric toothbrush benefit, which managed to prove that they actually do have enhanced plaque removal benefits over their regular counterparts.

Reduced cases of gingivitis is also associated with the use of electric toothbrushes, with their cleaning factors more than capable of actually getting rid of the microbes responsible for the development of the condition in individuals’ mouths.

Apart from their cleaning benefits, electric toothbrushes are also functional for people with physical disabilities, who, for one reason or another, are incapable of using standard toothbrushes as they are prescribed.

Individuals who wear braces can also better clean their teeth with the use of electric toothbrushes, which can easily and conveniently reach hard to reach spaces in between braces and teeth.

While electric toothbrushes are undeniably more expensive than their standard counterparts, the functional and enhanced cleaning benefits they offer to users are certainly worth the cost.

Available in a diverse range of types and product lines, individuals from different walks of life won’t have any problems in finding the right electric toothbrush that works for their needs, in helping them achieve their dream cavity-free and dental problem-free smiles.

Sonic Toothbrushes

Ultrasonic toothbrushes or sonic toothbrushes stand to be the latest development in the electric toothbrush arena, with sonic toothbrushes designed to effectively clean teeth with ultrasonic waves.

Though still bearing the same working dynamic of electric toothbrushes, sonic toothbrushes are designed to emit a wave frequency that helps clean teeth, achieved by a rated brush movement of 2,400,000 per minute, maximizing the product’s overall effect as an oral cleaning implement.

Argued to be more effective than regular toothbrushes, sonic toothbrushes continue to be one of the most popular electric toothbrush types, given how effective they are hailed in keeping teeth clean and cavity free.
