Children´s Teeth

.

.

Healthy parents conceive healthy children!

.

As soon as the teeth appear, you can gently wipe them with cotton wool after the evening meal.

.

Up to about the age of five, it is necessary for the parents to clean the child`s teeth again themselves. After this age parents still need to check that cleaning is done properly.

.

.

.

.

I recommended you use a non-harmful toothpaste that is fluoride-free and contains no questionable ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulphate or artificial sweeteners. READ THE LABEL

.

Children should only start using toothpaste if they are able to rinse and spit out the residue.

.

Some parents like to role-play an impending visit to the dentist with their child, which I recommend you do, leave out any reference to the magic words:” It will not hurt”.

.

If you have a routine dental appointment for yourself, take your child with you just to get him/her familiar with the dentist, the new environment and especially the sounds.

.

.

.

.

.

If one of the baby teeth has to be extracted your child should wear a “space maintainer”. This maintains the space for the permanent tooth to grow properly which is especially important for front teeth before the age of 4 and all other “baby teeth” before the age of 9.

.

Early habits like breathing through the mouth, sucking the thumb and tongue thrusting do not affect the permanent teeth if stopped by the age of 5 years.

.

To prevent the Nursing Bottle Syndrome from happening simply give your child plain water and never dip the pacifier in any sweet-tasting substances.

Do Not Add ANY Sugar to Their Food and

 

Avoid All Sugared Drinks.

How You Brush, Floss and Tongue Scrape

.

What Kind of Toothbrush Should You Choose?

If you have healthy teeth and gums, use any toothbrush you are most comfortable with, but make sure it has a small head.  When suffering from any kind of tooth decay or gum disease we highly recommend you use Dr Phillips’ Blotting Brush.  This will help restore your gums back to health.

Electric toothbrushes are efficient and have small heads to get deeper into the crevices between teeth.

.

How to Brush Your Teeth

The primary reason for cleaning your teeth is to remove plaque before it hardens on the enamel surface of your teeth or in between them.  We know from statistics that a mere 2% of people brush their teeth for longer than one minute!  Some families even share their toothbrush!

Most dentist and hygienist recommend the Bass technique as developed by the ‘Father of Dental Hygiene’ Dr Charles C. Bass.

.

Why Floss Your Teeth?

The purpose of flossing is to eliminate bacteria from the spaces between your teeth. You might think that these spaces in between your teeth are fairly tight. Unfortunately they are not at all for the bacteria. Bacteria are happy thriving in these interdental spaces destroying teeth and gums with their acids.

.

We recommend using dental tape instead of dental floss because it is easier to use, cleans the spaces in between your teeth faster due to its bigger surface. Due to its ribbon-like structure it is less likely to cut your gums.

.

Using a Tongue Scraper properly

Tongue cleaning removes millions of bacteria, decaying food debris, fungi, yeast (e.g. Candida), and dead cells.  Studies have shown that in 80-95% of bad breath originates in the mouth, mainly from material at the back of the tongue.

For best results gently scrape the surface of the tongue from the back to the front.  Run the scraper under the tap after every scrape.

NEVER EVER SHARE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH

Smile, it’s good for you!

We have all heard the expression that laughter is the best medicine, but it turns out that simply by smiling you are increasing your state of happiness, as well. For years physical movements or restrictions have been linked to the reciprocal emotional effects, so it is no surprise that recent research studies have proved that a simple act such as smiling actually boosts your mood, and even your ability to enjoy.

Where we would usually surmise that our emotional state is linked to involuntary physical acts (such as an accidental bump leading to anger, being tickled leading to happiness), recent studies have showed that even being instructed to make physical expressions and movements can lead to enhanced emotions. For example, someone instructed to make an angry face showed enhanced blood flow to their hands and feet (which fits in with the physical reactions of kicking and punching when angry), and those instructed to smile found others around them more favourable than when straight-faced.

A great example of the latter is in a recent study, participants were instructed to watch funny cartoons. Those who were instructed to hold a pencil in their teeth and thus forced to make a smile, found the cartoons funnier than the other participants who were instructed to hold the pencil in their lips, thus preventing them from being able to smile.

So whilst we are often taught that it is all about mind over matter, remember that this is not always the case, and that in fact, forcing yourself to smile can actually improve your emotional state, even if it is just temporary. OK, you may look a little strange walking down the street grinning to yourself, or sitting at your desk at work with a big, slightly scary smirk or your face, but if it makes the day slightly more bearable, it’s worth it!

 

And of course, the perfect smile needs perfect teeth – so check out our blotting brushes to achieve gnashers to be proud of!

Mercury

Mercury

.
Hardly any topic in dentistry is debated as controversially as Mercury Amalgam Fillings.

Advocates claim mercury fillings are safe, cheap and easy to use and stay for a very long time.

Opponents know that mercury is a neuro-toxin and uncover more and more evidence about its damage to overall health.

Mercury fillings are classified as medical devices; as soon as they are removed they become hazardous waste.

Why would anyone place something in their body that has a high potential to harm them?

If you prefer not to have mercury in your mouth why have it in your vaccines?
