YOUR BI-MONTHLY NEWSLETTER FROM DENTAL HEALTH ADVICE, August 2015
Welcome to the second newsletter from Dental Health Advice!
Hi, my name is Dr Richard Mitchell. I've been a dentist since 1979, working in the United Kingdom, Barbados, Germany, Australia and now Spain. I've written my website and bi-monthly newsletters to give honest and reliable dental advice that doesn't depend on you being a patient of ours. I also want to explain my knowledge as simply as I can... what better way than online?
In this edition don't miss the special

have flossed or not!!
Please feel free to contact me direct with suggestions and feedback!
An oral irrigator is a fantastic
little device for cleaning between your teeth, by squirting tiny
pulses of water. It's a bit like a jetwash for teeth, and works best
when it's used after normal brushing, for cleaning between your teeth where a normal
brush can't reach.
They are useful for removing food
debris from little spaces that are awkward to get to, such as under
fixed bridges and around dental implants, as well as getting into gaps
Oral irrigators can also remove
plaque, as well as food debris, but you will need to have one of the
better models available on
the market to
do this. Find out which oral irrigators I recommend by clicking HERE,
to visit the full Oral Irrigator Review on my website! I think
they are great, and I recommend that most of my patients should use one

The current situation in Tooth Whitening!
There are lots of opinions about tooth whitening. Many people have tried it, and been disappointed. This is a real shame, because tooth whitening can really work amazingly well! Unfortunately it's very hard for patients to tell what system will be effective and which ones will be rubbish.
Let me help! I can tell you which tooth whitening systems are likely to be a waste of money.
So what should you look for if you want the best, most modern tooth whitening?
So what are my best recommendations?
Why is flossing a good thing?
What should you be trying to do when you floss?
The answer is quite simple, but actually DOING IT is not easy.
Essentially, using dental floss the right way will remove loads of bacteria-laden plaque from between your teeth, where a toothbrush cannot reach, and floss can even get nasty bacteria out from under the edges of the gums!
Why is it important to remove bacteria-soaked plaque from between your teeth?
There are THREE reasons!

You might think that gum disease only affects your gums: bleeding gums when you brush or floss, receding gums, teeth getting loose. BUT YOU"D BE WRONG!
When you have infected gums, the bacteria and chronic inflamation have effects all over your body. This includes osteoporosis (weak bones), diabetes, and heart disease.
This is why it's so important to brush your teeth slowly and thoroughly AND floss between ALL your teeth too!

Perez the MouseIn many parts of the world, when a child loses a tooth, the Tooth Fairy comes to collect it and leaves money in its place. However, in Hispanic countries they have a different tradition. As I live in Spain I thought I would tell you what happens over here!
