Your New 2022 Dental Habits!

1 2 3

The dental habits many of us learned from a young age can lead to a range of oral issues and concerns. That’s why it’s crucial to understand how to take care of your oral health and to embark on the action needed to correct things. As we know- our teeth and gums do not magically regenerate! Read on for tips and a helpful quiz



Oral health may seem like a pretty straightforward scenario, but it can be a lot more complex. Digestion first begins in your mouth, so if your oral health is not on point, it will affect your digestive process at some stage.

There are of course the basics, which are: brushing teeth twice daily, using a quality mouth rinse, and flossing a few times a day or between meals. But within those basic steps is a lot is going on! Looking after your oral health need not be complex or time-consuming, it just needs to be simple, smart, and of course, effective.


Here are 3 steps to caring for your oral health:

  1. The products that you use for your oral care are highly important. Sometimes you can walk out of the supermarket or health supplement shop with 10 different products but the key thing to remember is to focus on what you need, what is effective, and how it is best used alongside other products. For this, we have a handy quiz by the team at CariFree, their oral care products are supported and recommended by the people who know best- dentists! Here’s the quiz! How did you score?

  2. As mentioned earlier, digestion begins in the mouth. Rather than make hard and heavy work for your oral processes, take some time to reflect upon your nutrition to garner whether certain foods are breaking down your dental hygiene instead of encouraging it. High sugar foods and drinks over time can damage the enamel on your teeth- something that cannot be rectified. Sweets and confectionery can cause cavities and also affect the PH balance of your mouth- this creates further issues right at the very beginning of your digestive function. In addition, if you aren’t using a good quality mouth rinse, the bacteria in your mouth can begin to give you bad breath, and no one wants that! 

  3. It’s a pretty simple one, but vital to teeth and gum health. Don’t over brush. Brushing your teeth should not be the only way that you keep your oral care in check. When it is left to just brush alone, you are more likely to brush harshly and vigorously and this can damage your teeth and gums. A visit to your dental hygienist can help you establish better ways to brush your teeth, and as stated, brushing is just a part of dental hygiene- alongside flossing, rinsing, and regular dental check-ups. 




Hopefully, these tips have helped you. Try the quiz?!



Dr. V Kim Kutsch is the CEO and creator of the CariFree line of products. Caries is another term for tooth decay and dental cavities, hence the brand name “CariFree”. 

While brushing and flossing can reduce bacteria, neither of them changes the acidic bacterial balance in your mouth and this is where CariFree pH elevated products can help. They can alter the chemical balance of your mouth and they are scientifically proven to prevent cavities.

Now there is a concrete technique to determine if patients are at risk for decay and products that will help them prevent future decay.”
