Love your gums

Smile and the world smiles with you us how the saying goes.

My son goes to the local village dentist it's private but it convenienant for his school and mine.

Ordinarily my son is not fazed by the dentist , he takes it in his stride but the last time he felt the dentist filled him with fear. And as a result for ages he didn't want to go but a simple pleasant phone call resulted in him being transferred to a dentist that he is much happier to see.

Service with a smile ... Sorry for the pun.

Also the dentist practice were able to chase up his braces appointment.

Gum care is important , many people will get gum health issues at some point in their lives and it's the biggest cause of tooth loss.  

My sons attitude to his dentist and subsequent dental care is leading me to revaluate my own dental care.

Coming from a long line of dashing denture wearers it's not something I relish wearing myself.

 So if I can at least try and stop the tradition with my own teeth. I willl be on to a sure winner and as previously mentioned the first step is good gum care.

 So the family are currently putting Pro-Expert Premium Gum toothpaste through its paces.

As a family we can follow simple tips as these to aid good gum and teeth care.

1 . Brush twice a day with a good fluoride paste such as Pro -Expert Premium Gun toothpaste.

2. Floss between your teeth everyday .

3. Visit a dentist regularly for check ups and cleaning.

4. Cut down on sugary food and drinks , I've swooped to having water with my meals instead of cola as have the rest of the family.

5. Don't smoke or chew tobacco.

6 . Cut down alcohol consumption.

SO we look forward to a long and healthy relationship with our pearly whites !
