Give your teeth the 20/20 boost

Thursday, 9 January 2020

Christmas and New Year may be behind us, but the effects of our indulgences may very well be at the forefront of our attention. Many of us will have embarked on diet changes or exercise regimes to eliminate those extra pounds we gained, however, have you stopped to consider the effect that the Christmas festivities have had on our teeth?

Dr Nigel Carter OBE, Chief Executive of the Oral Health Foundation, agrees that teeth take a hammering over the Christmas season. There's a tendency to excess,' he said. 'There's a lot more sugar around, and alcohol and mixers are high in sugar and very acidic, with the potential to cause damage to teeth. He recommends a New Year's resolution to give your teeth a bit of TLC. 'Cut down on the things that harm them, like sugars and particularly fizzy drinks which cause dental erosion, and do something good for them' he said.

Daily cleaning with BioMinF toothpaste will restore any lost tooth mineral caused by Christmas excess. The sugars in Christmas treats raise the acidity in the mouth, which can cause demineralisation of tooth enamel, decay and increased sensitivity where the dentine becomes exposed. And BioMin F is not just for Christmas. ‘I see it as a daily treatment people can easily incorporate into their regular routine,’ agreed hygienist Theresa McCarter.

BioMinF toothpaste has been accredited by the Oral Health Foundation, giving the public confidence that the product does what it claims to do.
