Excellent Tips For A Healthy Mouth This Winter

Jun 12, 2020 | Health & Fitness | 25 comments

Wintertime is finally upon us and just like any other time of year you want to be taking excellent care of your teeth to ensure a bright and shining smile. It can be easy to forget about best practices during this time of year as you tend to go out less and interact with others. Here are some tips to keep your mouth happy and healthy this winter.

Coffee, Lattes And Cappuccinos

As the temperature begins to drop and the days get shorter, many people will increase their daily coffee regimen. A nice, rich cup of hot coffee can be an excellent way to warm up in the mornings and get your day started. With the cold weather, some people tend to go for that foamy hot latte or a tasty cappuccino with lunch. This on its own is no problem, but keep in mind how much sugar you are putting in them. 

If you are increasing the number of coffees you drink per day make sure you match that with proper brushing. Coffee is also the culprit in many a stained smile out there, so make sure to pack a travel toothbrush with you to work and give your teeth a good ole scrub after you enjoy your favourite coffee drinks throughout the day.

Pies And Pastries – Oh My!

As the days and nights grow colder you might find yourself digging into a nice hot pie a lot more often than usual. Also, a warm pastry will likely find its way into your diet more often in cold weather. This is all good and well, but don’t forget to take care of those pearly whites after you eat. If you don’t have your toothbrush with you, a good rinse with water may not take care of all the things that cause tooth decay, but it’s a good start and will help a bit until you get to your regular brushing practices later in the day.

Cold Sensitivity

If you are one of the many people who suffer from tooth sensitivity, the cold weather may be something you really don’t look forward to every year. Breathing in cold air can irritate a sensitive tooth and even cause a painful flare-up in the winter. If you are experiencing this problem, then you probably want to switch to a toothpaste specifically designed for sensitive teeth. Ask your Sydney CBD dental clinic for recommendations regarding what product is best for you.

Keep Your Routines

In general, people live a busy life. In today’s world of fast-paced, up to the second communication, it can be exceedingly easy to forget about yourself as you try to keep up. Between a busy work schedule, trips to the gym, running your errands, and making time to spend with friends, family, and loved ones, you want to ensure your teeth don’t get left behind in the fray. 

Make sure you take the time to thoroughly brush every tooth specifically and whatever you do, don’t let your busy schedule cut in on your brushing time. As always, don’t forget to floss every day and take your time with this process as well.

      Oral health is very important. Brush 3 times a day to protect our teeth from bacterias. Now i know that are foods that makes our teeth look unpleasant. Just makes sure after eating or drinking coffee you rinse it well.

    Very helpful tips I will apply those tips Momsh. Knowing na coffee lover ako. Sensitive din mga ngipin ko sa lamig. Kaya pag nainom ng water i prefer lukewarm than cold. Lagi kong binabrush ang tongue ko kasi nag-contribute din pala siya sa cause ng bad breath.

    We need to take good care of our mouth tlga, kasi evry hour evry minute may nakakasalamuha tayu,di natin alam, nababahuan na pala sa bunganga natin, Diba nakakahiya.. Minsan kasi yung mismomg mga kinakain natin ang nakakasira ng ating mga ngipin.. KAYAT, Ugaliin nating magtoothbrush or used mouthwash as much as needed..

    Oral care , important talaga kasi everyday nakikisalamuha sa tao eh. Panu ka makakapag smile confidently kung may sira ngipin mo or may bad breath 😅.. isa din to sa pangdagdag confidence eh, yung alam mo sa sarili mo na mag smile widely and brightly ka man walang masasabi ang ibang tao.. anyways ,thanks po for the tips…

    Self hygiene is very important talaga. Lalo na ang pag totootbrush. Nakakawala naman talaga ng confidence pag sira ang ngipin. Kaya panatilihing malinis at iwas sa mga pagkain na nakakabilis makabulok ng ngipin.
