What are teeth?

Teeth consist of four main parts. Let us take a look at them from the inside out.

+ Pulp; what is commonly referred to as the nerve of the tooth. This is the core of the tooth and consists of all the connective tissues, blood vessels, and nerves.
+ Cementum; this is basically where the tooth is connected to the jaw. It engulfs the pulp, connects to the outer side of the tooth, and maintains its stability.
+ Dentin; a mineralized connective tissue that protects the softer tissues in the pulp and connects the whole tooth to the crown.
+ Enamel; the crown of the tooth. Enamel is the visible part of the human teeth. This is essentially why your teeth are the hardest part of your body. It is the most mineralized substance in a human body too at 96% minerals and a thickness that can go up to 2.5mm.

So, my teeth are very strong and fully protected.

Yes and no. As any other organ or parts of your body, this statement comes down to keeping your teeth in good health. Being one of the leading dental care Warrington centres, we have seen and treated countless cases where regular care would have prevented many problems.

Prevention is the best medicine, always rings true.

We love having you over at our clinic and provide you with the best, high-end professional dental care Warrington but, this does not mean that there are steps prior to visiting a dentist or clinic that can help you take care of your teeth.

Good habits to keep

You might think these go without saying, which might be true, but let us make sure we all always remember three main habits to keep daily. Brush. Floss. Rinse.

Brush your teeth daily; no matter what, this basic procedure using toothbrush and paste, is vital for the health of your teeth.
Floss between your teeth using speciality medical floss.
Rinse your teeth and mouth with hygienic, antiseptic, mouthwash.

In line with giving you the best dental care Warrington solutions, feel free to ask our dentists and dental hygienists about the best brushes, floss, and mouthwash specifically for your case.

Please avoid these habits, the don’ts.

To help maintain a healthy and strong set of teeth you need to also avoid some practices and we mention a few common ones here.

First off, don’t treat your teeth harshly. Aggressive brushing could lead to damage to your teeth and gum over long periods of time.
Don’t smoke. Among many other health risks, smoking can be very damaging to your dental health.
Don’t open bottles or wrapping with your teeth.
Don’t chew on overly hard foods, like cracking nuts or ice cubes, do not overindulge in sweets even if you regularly brush, and finally do not clinch hard on your teeth.

You do not always have to see a dentist.

Yes, don’t be surprised. You don’t have to see the dentist regularly if you are not suffering from a problem or need immediate medical attention.
Alternatively, for regular checking and prevention, make sure you visit one of our dental hygienists at least once every six months.
