5 Oral Health Tips for Busy Mothers

“Mother” might be your name, but superwoman is your game!

Mom and son eating appleAt Beachmere Dental, we understand that there’s nothing quite like a mother’s love, and when it comes to your family, you might regularly put their needs above your own.

This Mother’s Day, we hope that you take some time for yourself and focus on the areas of your life that you’d like to give more attention to.

If oral health is one of those areas, we’ve got some tips to help your teeth stay healthy and strong.

  1. Get more water into your day. Not only is it great for your overall health, but it’s good for your mouth, too. Water helps to rinse away plaque and food left behind from meals.
  2. Pick up a new toothbrush from the store the next time you’re out. You should change your toothbrush every three months. If you just did this recently, you’ll have one ready to go in a few months!
  3. Sip sugary drinks through a straw. This helps stop sugar from coming into contact with the enamel of your teeth, which can help prevent damage.
  4. Chew sugar-free gum to promote saliva, which neutralises acid. In fact, some studies indicate that chewing gum for 20 minutes after eating a meal may help reduce tooth decay.
  5. Snack smarter. Nuts, sliced apples, and leafy greens are healthy for your body and teeth.
