We put our toothbrushes in our mouths at least twice a day- often without thought to its cleanliness. Think about this: would you use a dinner fork that hadn't been thoroughly washed? Scientific studies have shown that airborne bacteria in bathrooms are a fact, and here's what you can do to make sure your toothbrush is fully sanitized...
Store it standing up so the bristle drain.
Keep it in the cupboard to protect it from air-borne germs.
Knock out the extra water.
Make sure no food particles are trapped in the bristles or on the tongue cleaner
Consider using an inexpensive UV light toothbrush sanitizer. One quick touch and 99.9% of the germs will be gone!
Germs are responsible for a wide range of different diseases. Some, such as Hepatitis and HIV are extremely serious, while others such as the common cold can be fairly mild. A huge number of these diseases are transmitted by blood, saliva, or in airborne droplets of bodily fluids that healthy people then come into contact with
Disinfection and sterilization are two crucial decontamination processes that are performed in medical and dental offices. Any good dental practice will have robust protocols for carrying out these processes, the purpose of which is to ensure that any medical and surgical instruments being used do not transmit infectious pathogens to patients.
If you are looking to transform the appearance of your smile, you may be considering getting porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments and can improve the way your teeth look in just two appointments. Each veneer is custom-designed for a specific tooth and is created in the perfect shape, size, and color needed to naturally enhance its appearance. The process to fit dental veneers is simple too and takes place over two visits to your dentist. The first is used to prepare whichever teeth are being covered with porcelain veneers. This involves administering local anesthetic so that a little of the enamel can be removed, which will ensure that the veneers do not make the tooth appear too thick. Impressions are then taken which will be used to create your veneers before you are fitted with a temporary device and can leave. The second appointment, a week or two later, will involve checking the fit of your veneers and securing them permanently in place.
