Oral health brands for a healthy smile:
Our smiles, like our hair is one of the first things people notice about us, a beautiful smile is so important to our personalities and self-confidence.
While the tips for maintaining general oral health haven’t changed, a recent survey suggests the number of people putting it into practice have declined. For as long as we can remember, the main tips for maintaining a healthy mouth are to:
-Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day using fluoride toothpaste.
– Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
– Visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
It sounds simple enough but not everyone keeps to these three most basic of rules. National Smile Month (20 May to 20 June) gives the perfect opportunity to revisit some of the basic rules of oral health.
There are currently more oral health products on the market than ever so there’s no reason not to keep up with oral hygiene. Here are the top brands for general good oral health.
