The Importance of Dental Hygiene
An unhealthy mouth puts your overall health and well-being at risk, negatively impacting your quality of life, self-esteem and the ability to socialise confidently. Without instilling regular dental visits and oral health habits, your quality of life may be affected by pain, discomfort and embarrassment.
Achieving good oral health starts with practicing these essential dental care habits:
1. Brush your teeth twice a day using toothpaste that contains fluoride.
2. Clean between your teeth daily by using dental floss.
3. Follow a healthy and balanced diet, limiting the consumption of foods and drinks with added sugar.
4. Visit the dentist regularly (every 6 months for a check-up and clean)
Keeping good oral hygiene is more than just brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing regularly. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings play a huge role in taking care of your oral hygiene. Your dentist will be able to detect early signs of dental problems that will avoid costly dental treatment down the track. Professional cleanings remove tartar and plaque build-up (that brushing and flossing can miss), which can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and other serious health conditions.
Taking care of your oral hygiene doesn’t require much time, and by incorporating these simple steps into your daily routine and visiting the dentists regularly, you can prevent a lifetime of oral diseases.
