Dentists are common across nearly every town in Ireland, but orthodontic treatment is now becoming more common throughout Ireland. Dental health care is more affordable and accessible for most people in Ireland in 2022. Although straight teeth are very important, there are also less invasive treatments for dental care like tooth whitening treatments and implants. We will also outline some tips for better oral health and how to pick the perfect toothbrush.
Orthodontic Treatments in Ireland
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment now trusted throughout the world as an orthodontic dental option by many dental experts. Invisalign uses clear removable aligners that don’t feel intrusive. Often people will not even know you are wearing them.
You can now live a normal life without being limited to food being caught in your braces, or embarrassing questions being asked. Invisalign braces help you avoid loose wires sticking out of your mouth, and allow you to enjoy all the benefits that come with a perfect smile.
Invisalign is the new Clear alternative
When you use Invisalign, you typically receive a new pair of clear aligners every two to four weeks from your dental professional. There may be some tightness in the initial day or two, but following this, they are generally more comfortable and can be worn for an uninterrupted 24 hour period.
You don’t have to live nearby to receive your aligners as they can be posted to you.
If you were to wear braces you would have to visit your orthodontist every few weeks, to have your braces manually tightened. This can be an unpleasant experience. It means you must plan your schedule around your appointments rather than simply waiting at home for a new arrival.
Maintaining Dental Health
It’s estimated that by 2022 most people will have one particular dental issue. That issue is gum disease which is caused by bacteria building up on teeth and gums. If left untreated it can lead to issues like cavities and tooth loss. The best way to deal with it is regular care.
Teeth cleaning is one of the most important procedures we do in our lives. It keeps our teeth healthy and strong and it can also prevent tooth decay and gum problems.
The first step to a great teeth cleaning is to start with a good brushing. The goal is to remove all the plaque from your mouth so that you can get a deeper clean when you go see your dentist for your teeth cleaning appointment. Start by giving yourself an over-the-shoulder head massage while you brush so that you remove any tension or headaches from the day. Make sure the bristles of the toothbrush are firm yet gentle on your gums, getting into every nook and cranny of your mouth. Brush in circular motions, going up and down on each tooth, using a light back and forth motion
Start by getting the right toothbrush
Ask a dental expert for advice about the best toothbrush for your needs and recommendation. It is important to invest in a toothbrush with soft bristles as harsh ones can damage your gums or cause bleeding.
Flossing and using mouthwash is worth the extra effort to avoid cavities, gum disease, or worse, visiting the dentist on a regular basis.
A final note
A toothbrush is a small investment that makes a world of difference to your oral hygiene. The more you take care of your teeth at home the less reason you will have to visit a dentist or orthodontist. Oral hygiene starts at home and it always starts with a toothbrush.
