Good oral health can have so many wonderful life-changing benefits.  From greater self-confidence to better luck in careers and relationships, a healthy smile can truly transform your visual appearance, the positivity of your mind-set, as well as improving the health of not only your mouth but your body too.

National Smile Month is a great chance to brush up on those oral health basics:

–              Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.

–              Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.

–              Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.Queensway Dental have a primary focus on preventative dentistry and the key to this is good oral health. With the help of practice mascots Tilly and Toby, they run oral health sessions where patients can find out more about tooth brushing, diet, smoking and other important oral health issues.

For those who are worried about bad breath, bleeding gums and appearance of their teeth, Queensway are offering a free smile check throughout National Smile Month. The appointment will include a thorough dental hygiene examination and gum health check with oral health advice including recommendations, demonstrations and free samples.

Sally Rodgers, dental hygienist at Queensway Dental said: “Although most people brush regularly, many don’t clean between their teeth and some people don’t have regular dental check-ups. A few small changes in your daily routine can make a big difference in the long term.  Queensway’s dental team can remove any build-up on your teeth and treat any gum disease that has already appeared but daily dental care is up to the individual. The main weapons are the toothbrush, toothpaste and interdental cleaning (cleaning between your teeth).

“National Smile Month is your chance to take a look at your oral health, learn more about why a healthy smile is so important and hear tips on how to improve and maintain it.”
