As they say “Prevention is better than cure.”
Cleaning your teeth regularly
The majority of dental problems like decay and gum disease can be prevented by good plaque (food and bacteria) removal.
- brushing twice a day with an electric toothbrush
- flossing once a day
- six monthly visits to a dentist to allow problems to be identified before becoming larger ones.
Diet is also important in preventing problems. The food and drinks that you consume and the frequency of consumption can create an environment that puts you more at risk of getting decay or gum disease.
Our dentists will discuss any dietary factors that may be placing you at an increased risk of decay or gum disease.
Other factors such as smoking can have significant effects on your general and dental health. At Rozelle Dental, our dentist’s are passionate about educating you on how to prevent most dental problems.
