You’ve probably heard it time and time again, but for some people in central Leeds, they need reminding of the importance of oral hygiene. Look at the bigger picture: if you get the right products to floss and brush with, you will help in preventing plaque growing in the mouth which will then lead to gum disease and tooth decay. These will damage the gums, ruin the teeth and possibly lead to heart failure in the future- you will also have to take out a second mortgage in order to pay for corrective procedures. Keeping your teeth free from bacteria here is key, so after every meal, the teeth and gums have to be free from foodstuffs that may have got stuck, otherwise the bacteria and acids turn to plaque and will attack the surfaces of the teeth. Flossing will help get in deep when it comes to intimate cleaning and get rid of anything lurking between the teeth and around the gums. Then you can get to work in earnest by brushing the surfaces of the teeth. Finding a good tooth brush and a good dental floss that suits your teeth and gums will be a matter of trial and error in the beginning but persevere and get it right and you will avoid complications in the future.
