Oral Health Padstow

Winter is here and with it the colder temperatures, but this season, don’t let the cold affect your oral health. Follow our easy tips to help keep your mouth in perfect condition.

  1. Chapped Lips

Treat yourself to a good quality lip salve with a high SPF and use it frequently. Additionally, make sure you drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated.

  1. Cold Sores

Cold sores can appear with the colder weather and are often a sign of a weakened immune system. Try not to touch your mouth too frequently, and if you do feel a cold sore developing, immediately apply a topical cream to help fight the infection.

  1. Tooth Sensitivity

It’s very common to find your teeth feel more sensitive in colder weather or when you eat cold foods. If you do have tooth sensitivity, visit Dentapex for a checkup, just to make sure it’s not caused by tooth decay or gum disease. Otherwise, try using toothpaste for sensitive teeth which can be extremely effective.

  1. Tooth Decay

It’s tempting to indulge in richer and sweeter comfort foods during the colder months, but this can increase your risk of cavities. Make sure your winter diet includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and sugar-free dairy products like cheese and natural yoghurt that are high in calcium.
