LIVE 24-SEVEN COMMON SMILE ANXIETIES HOW TO EASE


A smile is one of the first things we notice in others. Smiling is a sign of friendliness and trust and our ability to smile is also important for our mental health. Sadly, many of us hide our smile due to insecurities on how it looks. New research by the Oral Health Foundation and GSK revealed the 4 biggest anxieties we have about our oral health, most of which can be prevented or treated simply.


Tooth Loss –One of the most common nightmares is dreaming our teeth are falling out so it’s not surprising that tooth loss is top in the list of smile anxieties. Missing teeth can have a significant impact on our confidence to smile. The good news is preventing tooth loss can be relatively simple. Cleaning our teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice a day, reducing the amount and frequency of sugar and visiting a dentist and hygienist regularly can keep tooth decay and gum disease (the most common cause of tooth loss) at bay.

White Teeth –Our media driven environment has helped to create the illusion that white teeth are a sign of healthy teeth. This is untrue and seems to be having a negative effect on how we view our smile. Discoloured or yellow teeth can easily be whitened using safe whitening gels as prescribed by your dentist. Tooth whitening can add an extra sparkle to your teeth and is a fairly simple and safe


procedure. However it’s important to remember that the health of our teeth is not determined by how white they are. White teeth are just as susceptible to decay as natural looking teeth.


Bad Breath –We are all self- conscious of bad breath. Many of us know someone whose bad breath gives off an unfavourable scent so we are very conscious of how unpleasant it can be. Bad breath can have a big impact on our personal and professional lives. Always take advice from your dentist if you feel you have bad breath. There are a number of factors that can cause this including gum disease and dry mouth. We can help keep our breath fresh by brushing regularly, chewing sugar free gum and a daily mouthwash will help keep breath fresh.


Tooth Enamel – Tooth enamel is a protective layer over our teeth. This can be eroded and softened by acidic foods and drinks, particularly fizzy drinks, alcohol and fruit juices, leading to tooth wear. Enamel loss can expose roots and nerves which can be quite painful and lead to tooth sensitivity. This can also be costly to treat. Unfortunately our body cannot regenerate enamel as it doesn’t contain any living cells. Toothpastes like Sensodyne Pronamel can help re-harden tooth enamel to reduce potential wear.
