Time for Teeth


Time is the one thing that always seems to be in short supply (especially when it’s the weekend or when you happen to be on vacation). The amount of time in a day won’t change anytime soon, so the best thing to do is learn to manage your time effectively. The better you are able to do this, the more you can accomplish within the same amount of time.

The amount of time put into doing something, and also the time at which you do certain things can have an effect on the overall end results that are trying to be achieved. Take for example, the brushing of your teeth; when is the most effective time of day to do it and for how long? “Dr. Richard Marques, one of the UK’s leading dentists, told the Independent what he recommends when it comes to brushing teeth. ‘It is best to brush your teeth at least twice a day, in the morning and evening,’ he said. ‘You should wait at least 30 minutes after eating to brush the teeth, otherwise the acid can damage the tooth surface. Brushing before bed is really important, as otherwise the food can sit against the surface of the teeth and cause them to decay overnight.’”

Giving your teeth the proper attention twice daily is the best way to keep them healthy and strong. In addition to regular brushing, make sure to contact your Aylmer dentist to schedule an appointment for a cleaning and check-up.
