Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so the saying goes, but a recent study by Simplyhealth has revealed that 3 out of 4 women believe that their career will suffer as a result of having bad teeth.

Over half of those questioned even claimed that they wouldn't take a colleague to a meeting if they had bad teeth and 1 in 5 said that an unattractive smile or bad breath would stop them from hiring someone.

Here Dr Arjun Kachhala offers his top tips for making sure your teeth stay healthy and clean.

1. Visit your dentist regularly

Arjun-Kachhala-Invisalign-Dentist- Dr Kachhala says:

“You need to go and see your dentist and hygienist at least every six months. Classically people would go for a routine check for gum disease and tooth decay and you may think you don’t need to bother, but these days we are looking for many more problems, such as erosion, and can even spot signs of serious health problems.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Avoid acidic drinks

Many people think they are taking the healthy option when they drink a smoothie or fruit juice, but Dr Kachhala points out that this isn’t the best choice for your teeth. He says: “Smoothies, natural juices, cordial, concentrates and diet drinks are very acidic and erode the enamel on your teeth, which is why your teeth feel sticky after you drink them.” The answer? Drink water.
