Dental Hygiene and Care Tips
Dental Hygiene and Care Tips
January 26, 2021

With the recent restrictions put into place due to the pandemic, it has become much more difficult for individuals to visit their dentist in Toronto. At this time, only emergencies are being tended to, which means patients with minor or non-emergency issues may not be getting the dental care they need.


This is why it is incredibly important for you to ensure your dental hygiene is at its peak during this time.


Considering you will not be able to visit your dentist in Toronto easily during this time, it is vital that you manage your dental health in the best way you can at home. As long as you do not have major issues with your teeth or gums, this should be very easy to do. The tips we are about to share can be applied not only to adults but also to children.


1. Brush twice a day.

One of the biggest bad habits that leads to larger problems down the line is poor brushing habits. This refers not only to the frequency of brushing, but also in regards to technique. Choose a brush with soft bristles and utilize a gentle motion so as to not aggravate your gums. Your brushing should take between two to three minutes.


2. Use the proper toothpaste.

Fluoridated toothpaste is absolutely essential. Fluoride hardens tooth enamel and reduces risk of decay. On top of that, you can supplement your regular brushing routine with other products such as mouthwash.


3. Floss regularly.

This is especially true for adults. Use a slow and gentle motion, avoiding damaging your gums or causing bleeding. Some small amount of bleeding is normal, but do your best not to aggravate your gums too much.


4. Watch your diet.

This is a lifelong process. No matter how many times you visit your dentist in Toronto, if you do not maintain a healthy diet, you will be sure to have problems with your teeth down the line. This means limiting the consumption of acidic and sugary foods in particular.


Until the restrictions are lifted, it will be difficult to visit your dentist in Toronto. Make sure to care for your teeth properly at home in order to reduce the risk of decay.
