Diet

  • Diet: acidity, saliva composition, plaque

  • Well-balanced diet: whole grains, fruits and vegetables, dairy and protein

  • Moderate frequency of food intake and exposure to sugars


Health & Hygiene Habits

  • Brush at least twice a day and floss at least once

  • Use fluoridated toothpaste as fluorine has been known to:

    • Reduced enamel from being dissolved by acid because by strengthening it

    • reduces the ability of plaque to produce acid

    • encourages the tooth to repair itself (remineralization)


Exercise & Energy

  • By being physical active, you can maintain a healthy weight, a healthier body mass and composition.

  • Such results also assist in social development; build self confidence and social interactions (World Health Organisation, 2011).

Sleeping Habits HOLLY

Sweet Dreams. (n.d.). Retrieved March 22, 2011, from Women's Health Topics: http://womenshealthtopics.wordpress.com/2009/11/21/sweet-dreams/

  • 80-90% of the population grind their teeth to varying degrees

  • Can result in fractures, loose teeth, tooth sensitivity, tension headaches

  • Cause tooth decay by thinning the enamel layer protecting the dentine, allowing demineralisation to occur more rapidly

  • Can be prevented through relaxation and visiting the dentist.


Social Life HOLLY

  • Studies show that alcoholics have three times higher permanent tooth loss than the national average for corresponding ages.

  • Bacteria in the biofilm convert sugars to energy with acid as a waste.

  • Can take up to 20 mins for the pH to stabilise again after drinking.
