    Scared of the dentist? Keep visits to a minimum with these helpful tips

    teeth health smile dentist Although most people would agree that a visit to the dentist wouldn’t be their favourite way to spend their time, some would go as far as to say that they have a genuine phobia of dental check-ups. Recent studies in America have indicated that there is also a possible genetic link, which can pass this fear on from parents to children.

    Luckily, there are many things dentists can do to help terrified patients, such as cultivating a gentle bedside manner and keeping frightening-looking instruments out of sight.

    Although routine check-ups are an unavoidable necessity to maintain a healthy smile, there are steps which can help to avoid additional visits and treatments:

    – Regular and thorough brushing and flossing will help to keep the gums and teeth clean.

    – Bicarbonate of soda can be used to clean and polish the teeth.

    – Coconut oil is used by some people to clean hard to reach places in the mouth. It is ‘swished’ around the mouth before being spat out.

    Going to the dentist might be unnerving, but sound oral hygiene practices can help you keep this ordeal to the minimum.
