With the bulbs starting to peak through and the weather slightly warmer, you can really start to feel that spring is just around the corner. Spring is the perfect time to clear out the old and bring in the new.
The same principle can be applied to your oral health. Over the busy new year period it is easy for your oral hygiene routine to slip slightly, so here at The Essex Smile Centre we have come up with a 5 -point plan to put the spring back in your smile.
1. Good Oral hygiene
It is important to ensure that you brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and use interdental cleaning aids to clean in between your teeth daily.
2. Indulge in a varied diet
Eating too much of the wrong kind of foods is bad for your oral health as well as your body. Spring is a great chance to indulge in a diet rich in vitamins, minerals, fresh fruit and vegetables, a diet which can help to prevent gum disease.
3. Kick the habit
Smoking has a detrimental effect on your mouth, teeth and gums, causing teeth to become stained and dull. With No Smoking Day on Wednesday 8th March, why not take the leap and use this spring as the year you quit for good.
4. Visit the hygienist for a scale and polish
The hygienist is specifically trained to offer help and advice on preventative dental treatment. The hygienist will also scale and polish your teeth, removing stains to brighten and whiten your smile.
5. Budget for your dental treatment
Your dental care should not be viewed as a luxury. Alongside toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash and interdental cleaning aids, it is important not to forget regular dental appointments.

Why not consider one of our Denplan plans, with fixed affordable monthly payments you can ensure this spring you make your oral health a priority.
