Keep Your Smile Bright: 5 Dental Hygiene Habits You Should Practise

There’s no denying that regularly practising self-care is a good habit for anyone to implement. Though many forget that when it comes to self-care, consistency is key. Taking care of your overall health is a lifelong commitment, but sometimes the hustle and bustle of everyday life can get in the way. 


As beneficial as it is to do yoga and brain training puzzles, one of the best things you can do each day is to prioritise your dental health. Taking care of your oral health has a positive impact on the rest of your body and promotes a beautiful smile to boost your overall confidence (with a little help from expert teeth whitening at Midland Dental Hub!). At Midland Dental Hub, if there’s one thing we’re sure of, it’s that over the years, an investment in great oral health care repays our patients tenfold. Here’s our guide to a healthy smile, with straightforward tips that truly work.

Upgrade your toothpaste

We all know brushing twice daily is widely recommended to maintain healthy teeth, but have you considered your brand of toothpaste? Many on-the-shelf toothpaste brands advertise ‘incredible whitening effects’, but actually contain abrasive chemicals that can be damaging to your enamel over time. We recommend choosing a reliable, quality toothpaste, and opting for professional teeth whitening procedures by qualified dental practitioners to safely brighten your smile. When it comes to brushing your teeth, don’t rinse off your toothpaste! Simply spit it out and go on with your day, as this gives the active ingredients a chance to penetrate the teeth. 

Don’t forget to floss!

While brushing is essential for cleaning the surface of your teeth, daily flossing is key to removing the small particles of food and bacteria that like to hide between each tooth. Using floss gently (after each meal if you’re dedicated) to dislodge this residue can help keep your teeth healthy, breath fresh and smile beaming! 

Choose a healthy diet

Did you know that a diet high in sugar is one of the worst culprits that lead to poor oral health? With each mouthful offloading highly acidic particles onto your teeth, it’s no wonder that a poor diet heavily contributes to tooth decay and gum disease. Weakened oral health also means that your teeth are more susceptible to staining, so if you’re looking to improve the appearance of your teeth, we recommend steering clear of highly acidic foods and sweet treats.

Visit your dentist regularly

Making time to consistently visit your dentist is one of the greatest steps you can take toward better oral health. Regular dental check-ups and maintenance can help you avoid a host of oral health issues, through early treatment and reliable advice.


If you’re considering whitening your teeth, a dental clinic is the safest place to go for quality teeth whitening procedures, offering efficient treatments in a secure environment.

Invest in your smile

If you feel you’ve neglected your smile over the years, rest assured that it’s never too late to start! There’s no greater gift to yourself than investing in quality treatments to improve your oral wellbeing; helping to boost your quality of life, while restoring your smile to give your confidence an exciting boost. 


Plenty of people have a smile that they’re not proud of, but with treatments like dental implants, teeth whitening, and veneers, we can help you reach the level of confidence that you deserve. Professional teeth whitening at Midland Dental Hub is a fantastic way to efficiently create a healthy, glowing smile, without the same risk and potential discomfort that comes with over-the-counter products.
