Oral Hygiene

Oral hygiene is the practice of looking after your teeth to prevent the development of tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems. Daily brushing/flossing and undergoing bi-annual dental assessments are important examples of good oral hygiene techniques, as they contribute to maintaining overall wellbeing of your teeth and body. They also ensure you can eat and speak properly.

Persistent bad breath, inflamed or bleeding gums (gingivitis) and decaying teeth are common signs of poor oral hygiene and may indicate a problem. Poor oral health is harmful and has been linked to a number of serious health problems in mouths and around other parts of the body if left untreated. Oral infection, gingivitis, periodontal disease (inflamed gums and bones), strokes and heart disease are just a few examples.

Preventative steps for maintaining optimum oral hygiene:

Dental assessment

A regular dental assessment is more than just a “standard clean” to keep your teeth and gums in shape. It provides your dentist with an invaluable chance to identify any early signs of problems with your teeth or gums. For example, a simple filling at the right time could spare an expensive and time-consuming root canal in the future. So ensure you have a bi-annual dental assessment every six months in order to prevent such problems from occurring.

Daily routine

Developing a daily routine of brushing twice and flossing at least once is the best approach for preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Don’t forget to replace your toothbrush every three months and look for a toothpaste containing fluoride.
