Teeth whitening news: Round-tipped toothbrushes ‘are most effective’


Teeth whitening news: Round-tipped toothbrushes 'are most effective'People contemplating teeth whitening treatment to improve their bright smiles should use a toothbrush with a round tip for effective cleaning, an expert has claimed.

Periodontologist Professor Robin Seymour advised members of the public to make use of soft bristles in order to improve oral hygiene.

According to the Dentyl Active spokesman, toothbrushes with hardened bristles could damage the protective layer of enamel and lead to painful sensitivity.

Professor Seymour stated that the most effective types of teeth cleaning equipment enable users easy access to all areas of the mouth.

He added: "Electric or powered toothbrushes do have an important role to play in regular plaque removal. They are particularly useful in reaching the difficult tooth surfaces."

This advice comes after a survey by Wrigley revealed that 94 per cent of people forget to take care of their oral health after eating dinner.

Conducted to mark the start of the British Dental Health Foundation's National Smile Month campaign, the study also showed that only nine per cent of participants were willing to discuss their oral health with friends.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800568250-ADNFCR

Oral health news: Expert offers tips for teeth brushing


Oral health news: Expert offers tips for teeth brushingPeople who want to take precautions against emergency dentistry could be interested in a number of tips from a dental expert.

Dentyl Active spokesman and periodontologist Professor Robin Seymour has advised individuals to start brushing at the back of their mouths to ensure the best results.

He also advised members of the public to brush each tooth surface and the area around the gum line in order to ensure all areas of the mouth are cleaned.

With statistics revealing that less than ten per cent of people take part in regular flossing, Professor Seymour stated that an interproximal toothbrush can be just as useful.

He added: "With people's brushing habits being very poor for ridding plaque from their mouths, using an alcohol free mouthwash, twice daily is vital."

This news comes after the launch of the British Dental Health Foundation's National Smile Month campaign, which aims to promote oral hygiene to families across the UK.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800565212-ADNFCR

Teeth whitening news: Diet ‘has an impact on oral health’


Teeth whitening news: Diet 'has an impact on oral health'Dental patients who are contemplating London teeth whitening could be interested to hear that dietary habits can have an impact on oral health, according to an expert.

Consumption of high levels of acid, which is found in energy drinks and wine, could cause erosion of the teeth's protective layer of enamel.

Professor Robin Seymour, a peridontologist and spokesperson for Dentyl Active, addressed a link between modern diets and an increase in dental health problems.

He stated that consuming food and drink containing high levels of acid "causes a chemical loss of minerals to the tooth enamel, causing it to erode".

However, eating some foods could prove to be beneficial to overall oral health, Professor Seymour remarked.

Diets containing antioxidants and omega-3 oils are found to offer protection to the gums from harmful bacterial plaque.

The importance of a healthy smile has been highlighted by the British Dental Health Foundation.

Results from a recent survey conducted by the organisation revealed that 56 per cent of respondents think a nice smile is the most attractive quality in a prospective partner.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800554210-ADNFCR

Cosmetic dentistry ‘will not hide poor oral hygiene’


Unless you look after your teeth in the first place, cosmetic dentistry may be a mistake.People should not try to hide poor oral health with cosmetic dentistry, one expert has warned.

Leading periodontologist and Dentyl Active spokesperson Professor Robin Seymour said that not following a proper emergency dentistry prevention regime is likely to lead to gum disease in the long term.

This could then result in teeth becoming loose and falling out.

"Such tooth loss would make any cosmetic work a waste of time and money," the expert pointed out.

Professor Seymour recommended brushing teeth twice a day for at least two minutes and following this up with an alcohol-free mouthwash in order to keep the mouth and gums in top condition.

The recent Adult Dental Health Survey suggested more people may be trying to take better care of their teeth, showing that the proportion of adults in England with visible decay had fallen by a fifth since the last research was carried out in 1998.
