The Beauty of a Smile – Your smile is the most common feature people notice when they first meet someone, and this will have a lasting impression on others. Therefore, the importance of your dental hygiene, including oral health and clean teeth is paramount.
Your teeth and smile are perceived as a direct reflection of how you feel about yourself, how you take care of yourself and how you handle yourself. A smile also has other day-to-day benefits. It can give us greater confidence, as well as influence our social lives, careers, and relationships.
A healthy smile can truly transform our visual appearance, and the positivity of our mindset, as well as improve the health of not only our mouth but our body too.
Benefits of good oral health:
Keeping our teeth for life
Brushing our teeth twice daily, maintaining a low-in-sugar diet and regular visits to our dental professional can help reduce the risk of such diseases like dental decay and gum disease – both of which can result in tooth loss.
Reducing the risk of disease and illness
There are numerous health issues that can be linked to gum disease, which could potentially be avoided by keeping our teeth and gums healthy, which include cancer, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Maintaining our appearance
Keeping our teeth clean and healthy can help us steer clear of bad breath (halitosis). Bad breath is very common and is often caused by a build-up of plaque and is a symptom of gum disease and tooth decay, as well as being embarrassing and undesirable.
Another very common condition that can affect our appearance is tooth staining. Tooth staining is natural and comes with the ‘wear and tear’ usually associated with smoking, or drinking lots of tea, coffee, or red wine.
For my own dental hygiene, as well as a collection of toothbrushes to hand I would not be without a water flosser. Having worn braces in my teens as well as later in life and now having my teeth wired to prevent movement requires a certain dedication when caring for my teeth.
Taking advice from celebrity dentist and Waterpik Water Flosser Ambassador, Dr Rhona Eskander I have had the opportunity to try the world’s no.1 water flosser from Waterpik.
This revolutionary tooth care accessory is an easy and effective way to clean between teeth and is a joy to use, with excellent results.
Waterpik oral health products are clinically proven to provide significant oral health benefits:
Reach areas that you can’t get to with a toothbrush or string floss
The Waterpik Water Flosser also addresses specific dental needs including cleaning braces and orthodontics, treating periodontal pockets, and cleaning implants and dental work such as crowns, bridges, and veneers.
It is easy to use. Just point the flosser tip between your teeth and along the gum line, and let it do all the work for you.
It is fast. Water Flossing takes only a minute a day, making it easy to improve your oral health and enjoy the cleanest, freshest mouth possible.
It is effective. It removes the plaque and debris lurking deep between teeth and below the gum line, where it’s hard to reach with traditional brushing and flossing.
Another bonus with Waterpik is that they offer a wide variety of Water Flossers to suit everybody’s lifestyle. This may be for home use, on the go, or even combined with a toothbrush.
Depending on your water flosser model, also available to you is a selection of water flosser tips: for everyday use, braces, orthodontics, dental work and implants and a tongue cleaner for fresher breath.
