The shops of Leeds are packed with dental goodies; supermarkets and chemists have all the stuff you need to keep your mouth fresh and healthy on a daily basis. However, it’s not just about buying the right brush and toothbrush and paste, oral hygiene is more intricate these days and you should back-up the basic brushing with inter-dental cleaning as well. Flossing is a great way of getting between the teeth and gums to remove bits of food that get caught up in the places where your brush can’t get to, and if this is not removed, the acids will start to burn away at the enamel of your teeth. Small inter-dental brushes are also good for getting into the areas where the teeth and gums come together and if you use them in front of a mirror, you can see where the foods are lodged and then pick them out. This detailed cleaning is especially important as your teeth start to gap a little as you get older and this type of hygiene work then becomes essential. Do yourself a favour and go out and buy these products, and then learn to use them properly; by doing these you will save yourself from a world of hurt in the future and help you to have healthy teeth and gums for the rest of your life.
