It’s winter here, the best time of the year for people.

So, maintaining proper oral health is imperative at this time. If you’re someone who follows strict oral hygiene, ensure to take up a regular oral hygiene routine or visit Dentist Bundoora to help you with winter oral hygiene. To help our patients have a wonderful winter season, we have compiled a few winter care tips that keep your oral hygiene on point this season. Let’s get started.

Teeth sensitivity

Generally, you may experience teeth pain and sensitivity during winter. There are many culprits behind these: cold weather, seasonal allergies, sugary treats and poor oral hygiene. During winter, your teeth contract &  you may experience cracks or severe pain in the teeth. The dentin in your tooth gets exposed and becomes sensitive. So, keep your oral hygiene properly and make regular visits to the dental clinic to have your teeth in good health.

Delicious Sugary Treats

As the season is chill, cakes, cupcakes, waffles, and sugary delights can be the menu of the day. As a result, too much sugar intake can erode the enamel from the teeth, weaken them and lead to tooth sensitivity, decays and cavities. So, avoid binging on hard candies; keep a check on what you consume, drink lots of water and keep your mouth cleaned after every meal or snacks.

Visit A Dental Clinic

The best way to maintain your oral hygiene at this time is to visit a dentist nearby. Dentists Bundoora will diagnose the underlying teeth issues at the early stage and can assist with necessary treatments.
