Brush up on your dental knowledge and keep your teeth in top condition with these smile-saving tips.
Did you know? eating carbs with essential fats or protein can help to protect the enamel on your teeth.

You clean your teeth first thing in the morning and last thing at night, but have you ever thought about the part your mouth plays in wellbeing? Diet and oral health are intricately linked. Nutritional deficiencies and dietary imbalances can be evident just from peaking inside the mouth and gazing at the tongue. Every time you eat, you create an environment for oral bacteria to thrive and plaque to build up. Apart from obvious culprits such as fizzy drinks and sweet treats that exacerbate this, various foods such as nuts, oily fish and cheese can actually neutralise mouth acid and slow down tooth decay. 


Tooth Discolouration
 “If you brush and floss your teeth properly and visit your dentist regularly, your teeth should be a beautiful and natural colour,” says Dr Saeid Sohrabi, a dentist. “You can prevent your teeth darkening by avoiding certain foods that will stain them, most notably red wine and coffee.” 
Treat It: “While the slightly abrasive nature of salt can give your teeth a really good clean, if used too often, it can damage the enamel on your teeth, which will weaken them,” adds Dr Sohrabi. Munch on teeth-whitening foods, such as strawberries and crunchy raw vegetables, which help to wash away food particles and bacteria. Or try a gentle whitening toothpaste.

Cold Sores
Common reasons for cold sore flare-ups include fatigue, stress, a general feeling of being run down and too much alcohol. “They are painful, fluid-filled blisters around the mouth and are transmitted through direct contact,” says Dr Sohrabi. 
Treat It: Boost your immune system with a high-dosage multivitamin and treat the area topically with tea tree oil. 


Oral Candida
 “It’s normal to have a small amount of candida in your body. However, when it grows out of control (often because of a poor immune system), you can get white lesions in your mouth,” says Dr Sohrabi. 
Treat It: Trying to scrape the area is a big no- no, as it can lead to bleeding and inflammation. It’s best to take a probiotic supplement.


Sensitive Teeth
Sensitivity is a common condition; the symptoms can vary from having a mild twinge to a dull ache for several hours. “Often, it is caused by gum recession, usually from incorrect or over-zealous tooth brushing. Other causes include teeth grinding, early tooth fractures or decay,” explains Dr Sohrabi. 
Treat It: Use a toothpaste that is formulated for sensitive teeth. 


Bleeding Gums 
“The main cause of bleeding gums is gum disease such as gingivitis. However, it can also be a sign of more serious conditions such as diabetes,” says Dr Sohrabi. 
Treat It: Cut back on sugary foods as much as possible, take regular trips to the dentist and boost your oral regime with regular flossing. You could also try an alcohol-free mouthwash. 


Protect your smile. Doctor Sohrabi has the following tips for a winning smile:
*  Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleaning.
*  Brush your teeth well.
*  Floss after eating.
*  Watch your diet and avoid sugary foods.
* don’t smoke.
