While the wind is still a little cold outside, the sun is shining and it’s clear that spring is coming.
Now spring is in the air, what better time to invest your effort and energy than into giving your teeth a spring clean?
Spring clean your cupboards and revise your diet
Spring is an excellent time of the year to look at your diet and make changes to it. With the weather getting warmer we can get back on track with your health and make changes to your diet and exercise regime including our dental health.
Why not start by cutting down on your sugar intake?
Take stock of beverages first, paying special attention to those high in sugar such as soda, fruit juice and energy drinks. Replace these with water in order to immediately cut sugar intake and help keep teeth healthy.
Make a list of all the different foods you consume throughout the day and cut down on any nutritive foods in the form of sweets, pastries and cookies. Replace these with lean protein sources, legumes, fresh vegetables and fresh fruits.
Brushing and Flossing
Spring is also an ideal time to brush up on your brushing and flossing routine. If it’s been a while since you changed your toothbrush or toothbrush head, start your brushing and flossing with a spring in your step by investing in a new toothbrush. If you haven’t been brushing your teeth at least twice a day, make a commitment to do so and carry a travel toothbrush to use after lunch while you’re out and about and on the move.
Flossing is also an important habit that is often neglected. Commit to flossing once a day as part of your dental routine. If you need a refresher or any flossing tips call the team at Corner House Dental who will be able to give you advice on this.
