Spring ‘is a good time to start emergency dentistry prevention’
Anyone who does not already follow a diligent emergency dentistry prevention regime could find that spring is the perfect time to start.
This is according to mouthwash manufacturer Eludril and Elgydium, which told Dentistry.co.uk that people should spring clean their oral hygiene in the same way they would their houses after the winter months.
To begin with, the firm's experts recommended always brushing for two minutes twice a day, even if you are feeling tired. They suggested getting ready for bed early if you are in for the whole evening, as this will leave you more time for brushing.
Flossing was also recommended, as was buying a new toothbrush.
Finally, Eludril and Elgydium said it is vital to pick up the phone and make a dental appointment if you haven't had a check-up in ages.
Last month, Dr Ogo Eze told the Guardian that it is important to brush regularly but not too vigorously, as this can scrub away the gums.
