Protect Your Smile

Protect Your Smile

There really is nothing better than being able to smile with complete and total joy and enthusiasm. A beaming smile can set people at ease, project confidence, and even make people more engaged in the things that you’re saying. Of course, nothing is going to make you less inclined to give a grin to the people around you than a problem with your pearly whites. Problems with your teeth can make the idea of smiling very uncomfortable for a lot of people. This means that they end up losing confidence and finding it quite difficult to engage with people at all. If that’s the sort of position that you find yourself in, then don’t worry. There are plenty of things that you can do to banish your teeth problems and finally get your smile back! With that in mind, here are some of the most common dental problems that people have, and what you can do to protect your smile.

Protect Your Smile: Yellowing

Few things are more embarrassing than flashing a smile and discovering that your mouth is full of discoloured, yellow teeth. Even if you take care to clean them carefully, people are automatically going to assume that you make no effort to take care of your dental hygiene. This is undoubtedly going to have a major impact on your confidence levels and make you want to avoid showing your teeth at all. Luckily there are plenty of natural remedies that you can use in order to whiten your teeth quickly and easily. Even something as simple as rubbing a mix of lemon juice and salt on your teeth twice a day for a couple of weeks can make a remarkable amount of difference to the whiteness of your teeth.

Cracked or Missing Teeth

Sometimes accidents happen and you can end up with a cracked tooth. Despite the fact this has nothing to do with the care that you take over your teeth, it’s certainly going to be a little bit embarrassing, not to mention painful!. The same goes for any missing teeth as well. It’s hard to shake the classic image of yokels chewing on corn and spitting into a bucket when you see someone missing one of their teeth. Dental implants are undoubtedly the best method for dealing with this problem. You can find out more about the process of getting dental implants here. Not only are dental implants safe and convenient, but they also help to promote the health of your existing teeth as well.

Protect Your Smile: Crooked Teeth

Many people consider crooked teeth to be their worst feature. It’s the kind of thing that can have a lifelong impact on someone’s confidence, keeping them from doing many of the things that they really want to. If you never had braces when you were younger then don’t worry, there are plenty of ways you can help to straighten your teeth as an adult. Between clear aligners, palatal expanders, and lingual braces, there are plenty of different options to help straighten out your teeth as effectively as possible. To find out the best solution for you, it’s a good idea to talk to your dentist and work out a plan together.

Far too many people end up taking their teeth for granted. Far too often people only really pay attention to the health of their teeth when something is wrong. To protect your smile the best thing that you can do is to make sure that you’re taking the best possible care of your teeth all the time to avoid something going wrong in the first place.

 

It Flashes!! Firefly Toothbrush Review.

Kieran is pretty good when it comes to brushing his teeth, no kicking, screaming and dragging him into the bathroom  (phew!). What he does lack is patience! Dentists recommend brushing your teeth for two minutes, twice a day to maintain healthy teeth and gums and I am very keen on promoting a good dental hygiene routine for my boys.

When I was asked if Kieran would mind testing out the Firefly toothbrush, I jumped at the chance.

Kieran’s initial reactions were “Cooooool, it’s Spiderman!” and “Awesome – it flashes, look Mummy, it flashes!!“. The child really is an 80’s throwback at times! The brush flashes for 1 minute and Kieran loves this. It is fun, and is good for him. That ticks all the Mummy boxes then! The batteries are encased in the brush and last the lifetime of the brush and replacing it won’t break the bank either. These brushes, (For ages 2+), which come in a Spiderman design or Hello Kitty are available from Llyods Pharmacy, Argos and  other leading retailers and are priced at between £1.49 – £2.49.

Why not pop over to the Firefly Facebook page to find out more!

*It is worth mentioning that until Kieran starting using the Firefly brush, I don’t think I was doing the full recommended 2mins either – whoops.

Thumbs up from me!
