Nutrition scientist offers tips on emergency dentistry prevention


Brush, floss and eat plenty of nutrients if you want to avoid emergency dentistry.  A nutrition scientist has offered some top tips to people who want to avoid emergency dentistry and keep all their teeth.

Dr Ed Blonz from the University of California told the Mercury News that the essential ingredients for strong teeth are calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, vitamin D and a little fluoride.

However, he also warned that it is vital to take good care of them from the outside too, brushing away sugar that can cause bacteria to breed and flossing.

When asked how essential flossing is, Dr Blonz joked that people should only floss the teeth they want to keep.

Brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing once every 24 hours is the recommended advice from dentists.

Last month, Dr Ogo Eze told the Guardian that people should be careful they are not too vigorous with their toothbrush, as this can actually cause the gums to recede.

Effective toothbrushes ‘are essential for emergency dentistry prevention’


A toothbrush cannot help in the battle against emergency dentistry if it is in a bad state.  Making sure your toothbrush is working effectively is essential for emergency dentistry prevention, one expert has said.

Sebastiana Springmann, a dentist in Virginia, told the Detroit News that battered brushes with frayed bristles will not effectively remove plaque and are therefore not doing what they should to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

She advised replacing them at least every three or four months – or more if you have been ill recently – and offered some tips on how to keep them at their best.

Firstly, rinse your brush thoroughly after every use to wash away debris, then place it in an upright container to air it out.

In addition, Ms Springmann warned against sharing brushes to prevent germs spreading from mouth to mouth.

Last month, Dr Ogo Eze told the Guardian that electric toothbrushes could help children and those with manual dexterity problems in the battle against emergency dentistry.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800443706-ADNFCR

Spring ‘is a good time to start emergency dentistry prevention’


Make emergency dentistry prevention a new resolution for spring.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 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.

Electric toothbrushes ‘could help emergency dentistry prevention regimes’


Could an electric toothbrush help you to prevent a need for emergency dentistry?  Some people may benefit from using electric toothbrushes when it comes to emergency dentistry prevention.

This is the advice of Dr Ogo Eze, who told the Guardian that the devices could help those with manual dexterity problems, or children who struggle with their coordination during brushing.

However, he added: "I wouldn't say electric toothbrushes are automatically better," pointing out that technique is the most important issue.

Dr Eze said one thing that is vital is the use of floss once a day, preferably at night.

The expert recommended flossing first and then brushing, because this will open slight gaps between the teeth to get a brush and toothpaste into, as well as allowing food particles and bacteria to be swept out.

In October 2010, researchers from the University of North Carolina found the Philips Sonicare power toothbrush performed significantly better in tests than a manual brush, reported.

Brushing regularly but not too vigorously should prevent emergency dentistry


Diligence and regularity is best when it comes to preventing emergency dentistry. People hoping to prevent emergency dentistry should make sure they brush regularly but not too vigorously, one expert has advised.

Dr Ogo Eze told the Guardian that cleaning teeth at least twice a day is essential, but added that he thinks doing so after lunch would also be beneficial in stopping bacterial build-up.

However, he explained scrubbing away at the surfaces could do more harm than good.

"People think receding gums are a sign of gum disease, but it's often a sign of too much scrubbing," Dr Eze commented.

The expert went on to advise people to clean just under the edges of the gums as well as over the tongue in order make sure as much plaque as possible is removed from the mouth.

Colgate states that a soft-bristled, small-headed toothbrush is best for removing debris from the teeth as it can get right to the back of the mouth.
