Looking after your Teeth- Dentist Rickmansworth
When searching for a dental practice, things you are likely considering are the range of procedures that the surgery offers, the price of these services and procedures and how highly the customers rate the clinic. If you are finding it difficult to make a decision on which Dentist Rickmansworth is the appropriate choice for you then we would confidently put ourselves forward. Here at Victoria Road Dental Clinic, we strive to go above and beyond our customer’s expectations and provide them with the most professional, efficient and dedicated dentistry they have come across.
Typically, it is recommended to visit the dentist every 6 months. Your dentist can extend this to up to a year if your dental health is exceptional. Likewise, you could be advised to have a checkup more frequently as a result of previous issues with your teeth or if you live a certain lifestyle. If you haven’t been to see a dentist in a while then in order to gauge how often you should be going to the dentist, it is important you book an initial appointment and allow a professional to take a look at your teeth and gums. If you are experiencing any issues with your oral health then it is crucial you make an appointment as soon as possible before it deteriorates further.

A factor that can have a massive impact on your dental health is the food and drinks that you consume. It can affect the colouring of your teeth, the enamel and sensitivity which can lead to needed fillings and other procedures.
Food, drinks and habits to avoid-Dentist Rickmansworth
Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing and using mouthwash are all recommended in order to maintain dental health. In addition to this, it is important to pay attention to what you are eating and drinking. Unfortunately, the majority of consumables that we enjoy are not good for our teeth. By changing or reducing the types of bad food and drinks you consume you can stop as much damage being done.
A habit which we all know has a hugely detrimental effect on not only our oral health but health, in general, is smoking. By reducing smoking or stopping completely it will greatly increase the brightness and health of your teeth. Cigarettes dry out your mouth as well as drastically staining the teeth yellow and sometimes, if someone smokes for long enough, black. A dry mouth allows for bacteria to linger on your teeth for long periods. Additionally Drinking red wine can stain your teeth and also increase their stickiness, in turn, damages the enamel further. Citric acids such as certain fruits are another harmful substance which wears down the enamel on your teeth and the high content of sugar encourages bacteria to slowly break them down releasing more acid. Fizzy drinks such as coca cola have an incredible amount of sugar and acids in. It has been suggested that they can do more damage than sugar alone. Citric sweets combining sugar and citric acid are often the most damaging to teeth and should be avoided.

Foods and drinks that support your oral health-Dentist Rickmansworth
Firstly water is not only something that we cannot live without for hydrating reasons but is also very good for your teeth as it keeps teeth moist and contains minerals which strengthen teeth. Additionally, dairy products such as cheese, yoghurt and milk are also beneficial for your teeth as they are calcium rich. Milk neutralises any acid on the teeth as well as being a fantastic source of calcium. Within yoghurt, there are many healthy bacterias that are beneficial in fighting the bacteria that cause cavities. However, it is advised to eat sugar-free yoghurt for the reasons discussed above. Although sugar should be avoided, there are sugary foods that can actually improve the health of your teeth. Carrots and apples cause increased saliva in your mouth when eaten which can rinse away debris left behind from damaging foods and drinks. Furthermore eating celery scrapes bacteria and food away from your mouth.
