• Brush twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste
• Clean in-between your teeth once daily with floss or interdental brushes
• Visit your dentist regularly
• Chew sugar-free gum after eating or drinking, especially sugary foods, to help protect your teeth and gums in between meals.
• Wait an hour after eating or drinking anything before brushing as then enamel will be softened and you could be brushing away tiny particles.
• Avoid snacking and try to only have sugary foods and drinks at mealtimes, reducing the time your teeth come under attack.If you are concerned about your dental health then drop our friendly team an email here...

The dental team at Smile Essential will be asking patients to check in when visiting the dental clinic and show that they are ‘Getting Their Smile On!’ to fundraise for BBC Children in Need's 2017 Appeal. Money raised will go on to support disadvantaged children and young people all across the UK.
Beginning November 1st we will be encouraging all patients to check in on Facebook when visiting our Leicester dental practice to encourage everyone to get their smile on for Children in Need.
It’s our passion at Smile Essential to create happy confident smiles and when we heard that Children in Need wanted people to do their thing to fundraise we thought we would encourage as many people as possible to get their smile on for Children in Need.
Taking part couldn’t be easier! Check-in on Facebook whilst waiting for your dental appointment and we will donate £1 to Children in Need. We will increase the donation to £2 if you take a picture, comment or review us. We would most of all like you to check in with a photo of you getting your smile on at our dentist and use this to check-in.
Niket Patel, Principle dentist said: “It should certainly make for an unusual time for us at the dental practice! We’ve had a great reaction from people so far, and would like to say a huge thank you to all those involved in the planning! We’d like to raise as much as possible though, so please do dig deep if you can! It’s a fantastic feeling to know we’re helping raise money for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.”
BBC Children in Need works throughout the year to ensure that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood, and the chance to reach their full potential. It relies on the energy and commitment of thousands of fundraisers and supporters across the UK, who donate their time and money to put on events supporting the Appeal.
Colgate and the British Dental Association have partnered again this year to raise awareness of good oral health in children. Our dental practice Smile Essential is proud to be supporting this year's campaign and we hope to make a difference to Leicester children visiting our dental clinic.
Children of Leicester have the highest decay rate across the UK and we hope that participating in the programme we can educate all of the children visiting our practice.
Children’s teeth should last them a lifetime and this is the programmes ultimate goal. Ensuring children’s smiles last a lifetime by teaching them to become Tooth Defenders. Working together with our Smile Essential dental team to help your child become a lifelong Tooth Defender!
We aim to support the programme through colourful displays in our patient lounge, friendly information sheets for children and parents, tooth brushing charts, balloons and some friendly guidance from our highly trained dental team.
7 Steps to ensure your child’s smile lasts a lifetime:
1) Brush teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, before bed and on one other occasion
2) Supervise your child during tooth brushing until they are at least 7 years old
3) Just spit after tooth brushing, rinsing washes the fluoride protection away
4) If your dentist recommends a fluoride mouthwash, use this at a different time from tooth brushing to increase protection throughout the day
5) Reduce the amount and frequency of sugary food and drinks
6) Ensure you visit your dental professional regularly
7) Wear a mouthguard when playing sports

Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommendIt is particularly important for the people of Leicester to promote this message for the children in the county. According to an NHS report, over 50% of children in Leicester have dental decay compared to the national average of 27%. A shocking statistic, I’m sure you’ll agree. This year we will be holding a week children's week to help educate engage children and parents to better oral health. We will have an interactive zone where children can see just how much sugar is hidden in some of their favourite drinks. Dr Niket Patel commented “we're delighted to get involved in National Smile Month and try to promote good oral hygiene habits to children and parents. Good oral health should be important to everyone and we are always looking for ways to help improve the dental health of our patients."
