Maintaining a good level or oral hygiene is essential for us to feel happy about our teeth and gums. We all now how painful and annoying tooth ache can be, so it is important to do everything we can to keep our teeth and gums in good health.


Of course the best way to check that your mouth is in good shape is to have regular check ups with your dentist in Maidstone. To make sure that you need to have extensive work done you can follow the following simple tips that will ensure your teeth and gums are looking great!

Stay hydrated

It is always a good idea to try and drink a glass of water each and every hour that you are at work. We’re always rushing around when we finally get home, so do your hydrating during work hours. Water is great for your skin but it is also good for your teeth. The more water you drink, the more you will flush your mouth and clean the bacteria off your teeth, which means there is less chance of gum disease and cavities.

Your teeth are for eating

We have all used our teeth to open a bottle or awkward plastic bag, remember that you’re teeth are precious so you shouldn’t use them as if they were a tool. Make it a habit to use scissors or a bottle opener every time you need to open something – you can even go as far as keeping a couple spare in the office so you’re never caught using your teeth again!

Eat food that will clean your teeth

That’s right, there are foods out there that will actually help keep your teeth clean! Any food that is crisp and firm will clean your teeth as you eat it. Good examples are; apples, raw carrots and celery.
