Living with Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign is a hugely popular way to straighten teeth because it uses clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible instead of metal braces. The aligners can achieve very good results when correcting numerous common orthodontic problems, straightening teeth and closing or minimizing unsightly spaces between them. If you have been considering Invisalign in Whitby, you’ve probably wondered what treatment will be like and the possible impact on day-to-day life.

Have you ever paused to think for a moment about your choice of toothpaste? Effective toothbrushing relies on using the right products, including your toothpaste, and the proper brushing techniques. Don’t worry, as it isn’t complicated, and the best product is most likely one you enjoy using and which will encourage you to continue brushing your teeth regularly, so don’t disregard the need to choose toothpaste in a flavour and texture that appeals. We’ve put together a short guide outlining some of the options available. Fluoride and Why It’s Important The Canadian Dental Association supports the use of appropriate fluoride in dentistry and fluoridated toothpaste should be used twice daily to brush teeth.

Easy Tips for Having Healthier Teeth During the Holidays

But the wide choice of sugary treats, late-night celebrations and additional alcohol consumption can play havoc with dental health. Follow these easy tips to maintain good dental health in Ajax during the holidays. 1.    Don’t eat too much sugar as mouth bacteria feast on the leftovers, producing harmful acid that increases the risk of tooth decay. Children’s teeth are even more vulnerable to tooth decay in Oshawa as their tooth enamel is thinner and weaker compared with adult teeth. You don’t need to avoid sweet treats entirely but avoid snacking and instead have them as part of a main meal as the mouth is already more acidic, so damage is reduced. Also, bear in mind sugar is present in many foods like dried fruits, fruit juices and other sweet beverages. 2.    If there is…
