Good oral hygiene is essential to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
At your local pharmacy we keep the leading brands Oral B and Colgate amongst others, so we have everything you need to follow the 3 steps for a good clean – brushing, flossing and rinsing – morning and night.
However there are a number of oral conditions which may trouble you or a loved one occasionally, which are briefly outlined below.
Mouth Ulcers can occur at any ange and can be quite painful. They will usually clear up within a few days and are most commonly caused by physical trauma e.g. biting you cheek or lip accidentally. For persistant cases and pain relief gels, come in and speak to our pharmacist.
Oral Thrush is a fungal infection in the mouth which causes white and red patches on the skin inside the mouth. If you or a family member have a suspected case of oral thrush you will need to see a pharmacist or doctor for treatment options.
Dry Mouth Syndrome is when there is not enuogh saliva (spit) in the mouth. It is generally only a symptom of an underlying problem and the cause may include – certain medications you are taking, dehydration or infection. Thankfully there are a number of moisturising mouth sprays, gels, rinses and toothpastes available which are designed to provide long lasting relief from dry mouth and they can be found in-store here at Quirindi Pharmacy.
Other oral care issues include toothaches/teething in infants, persistant sore throat, gingivitis or haliotosis. For all of these queries come in and speak to one of our friendly team members or pharmacist today!
