How to maintain your Oral Health

A good oral hygiene routine is vital for keeping teeth healthy. In addition to, brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing regularly, arranging dental check-ups at 6 monthly intervals are equally important to maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Other dental care tips for good oral hygiene and health include:

  • Drink fluoridated water for prevention of tooth decay
  • Limit consumption of sugary drinks
  • Chew sugar-free gum
  • Keep an eye out for any changes in your mouth and inform your dentist

The Importance of Regular Dental Check Ups

Many issues can be easily resolved when caught early on. Regular dental check- ups are a routine part of dental maintenance. This means that a minor procedure might be possible rather than a major one, resulting in a lower cost as well as minimising any damage to your tooth. For instance, minor tooth decay may be treated with a small filling if a diagnosis is made early enough, but if left for too long, it may require extensive dental work, example a root canal. To catch issues early and prevent major problems from developing, regular dental check ups are crucial.
