Keeping teeth white during lockdown

Well here we are in very unusual times with many of us stuck at home with not much to do except watch tons of Netflix and check out what’s new to buy online.

Once our practical activities are completed for the day, maybe it’s a good time to reflect on our appearances. Here we’re going to specifically look at improving our smiles ready for when we start meeting people again.

We have good news for you: Now is the time to reflect on your smile and see how it can be greatly improved and boost your confidence.

You’ll be surprised how many people actually neglect their teeth in lockdown, so let’s have a look at what good practises we can put in place to keep our teeth healthy at home.

One more question, how serious do we take our dental hygiene when we don’t have to see people face to face?

You might be lucky enough to have a job in today’s climate and working remotely from home via a web cam, so keeping up appearances can still be quite an important responsibility.

The first task which many of us can lapse into is not brushing our teeth on a regular daily basis.

The recommended times are at least twice a day. Once in the morning and again before bed. This will help towards keeping the teeth fresh,  good looking and clean keeping those unwanted stains and debris away.

So, it is need to maintain our dental health on a daily basis. Sometimes, it’s a real struggle during these times to get to the dentist, especially as they have a building backlog of patients ready for when they can operate again so prevention is better than cure.

There’s an age old saying: It’s better to build a fence at the top of a cliff than a hospital at the bottom.

The last thing anyone wants to risk is a suffering toothache, which makes brushing our teeth super important during these times.

Teeth Whitening during lockdown

As we’re discussing looking after our teeth during lockdown, then how can we maintain white teeth when we can’t easily get along to a professional teeth whitening provider?

We have written some great articles like the top 10 tips to keeping your teeth white which are certainly worth having a read, as we discuss in a bit more depth simple things you can do at home.

We are also dedicated to keeping our 24/7 support helpline open for any questions you have during this difficult time relating to teeth whitening, and the best and most suitable advice.

Cut down on sweets and sugar

How easy is it to pick up a bag of sweets, dip extra biscuits or have a few extra slices of cake during lockdown – very easy if you ask many people with a sweet tooth.

As well as the coinciding effects this can have on our weight, it will also be taking its toll on our teeth.

So, try and cut down on these guilty pleasures and be aware of the damage it can be doing to our teeth short term and long term.

Reduce high teeth staining habits

We mention these quite a lot through our site and discuss these in more depth here.

Again, when stuck indoors and working at home smoking more becomes more prevalent during lockdown. Let’s face it a fag break can be taken at anytime! Try and cut them down.

A lot of people smoke more at home simply with the added stresses lockdown can bring.

Our recommendation is to cut down smoking, or at least take up an alternative like e-cigarettes or vapes that don’t contain tar which can easily stain the teeth.

Children and Oral Dental Care

Children’s dental healthcare

Many countries all over the world do not have an awareness of dental health and especially giving kids the right supervision.

Even some adults may not look after their teeth well, so how much more important is it that we ensure our kids do.

By looking after and correctly supervising the health your child’s teeth, you are setting them up for the future to have healthy, dazzling white looking teeth which in time they’ll greatly appreciate.

There are various online surveys you can read about how vital children’s dental care is, and that it shouldn’t be neglected.

It’s really important to keep up to date as this will save you many trips to the local dentist in the future as well.

Oral Health should be a high priority

So, we hopefully have understood a bit more about keeping our teeth healthy and that oral heal should be a high priority not just for ourselves but for our kids as well during these lockdown times.

It’s always good to keep up with a new fresh toothbrush. Some people opt for an electric toothbrush which has its benefits, but most important a good hard toothbrush helps really remove those stains along with a whitening toothpaste.
