Preventive Care

Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial at every stage of life, regardless of age. Consistently practicing proper oral care at home and scheduling regular dental checkups are essential for preserving a healthy and radiant smile throughout the years. Here are some straightforward steps to help prevent the accumulation of plaque and cavities:
  1. Regular Brushing: Brush your teeth at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Employ fluoride toothpaste to effectively remove food particles and plaque from tooth surfaces. Don’t forget to gently brush the surface of your tongue, as this aids in eliminating additional plaque-causing food particles and maintaining fresh breath.
  2. Flossing: Clean between your teeth by flossing once a day. This helps eliminate plaque and food particles that may linger between teeth and under the gum line, where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. You can also use mouthwash to kill bacteria and freshen your breath.

3. Dietary Choices: Maintain a balanced diet and reduce the consumption of        sugary treats. Opt for nutritious foods such as raw vegetables, plain yogurt, cheese, or fruit to support the health of your smile.

4.Regular Dental Checkups: Schedule dental checkups every six months to benefit from professional teeth cleaning. During these appointments, your dentist can provide guidance and perform necessary preventive measures.

5.Dental Sealants: Inquire about dental sealants from your dentist. These protective plastic coatings can be applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, which are prone to early decay.

6.Mouthguards: If you participate in sports, consult your dentist about custom mouthguards

Additionally, here are instructions on brushing and flossing:

Brushing Instructions: Brush your teeth for at least two minutes, ensuring you cover all surfaces. Use gentle, circular motions and be thorough.

Flossing Instructions: When flossing, use a gentle sawing motion to slide the floss between your teeth. Curve it into a “C” shape around each tooth and gently glide it up and down to remove debris and plaque.
