Issue 33

Look after your teeth?           health-icon

Understand your oral needs. Your oral health depends on many factors. This may be forgetfulness, what you eat and what you drink, whether you have a dry mouth; because the problem with a dry mouth is there's not enough saliva to break down the build up of plaque and decay on a daily basis. Talk to your nurse or dentist and maybe come up with a basic routine. This maybe a simple three step guide you can place somewhere to remind yourself;
1 remember to brush every morning
2 you could add some sugar free gum to fight the build up of plaque
3 remember to brush or floss before bed

Keep on smiling! Shaun
