When it comes to dental health, creating a contingency plan for the maintenance of your oral health with your dentist is paramount to avoiding troublesome, painful and expensive dental problems down the track.
Your daily oral hygiene routine should include:
- Brushing your teeth morning and night. This should be done in a circular motion with moderate pressure, and should come in contact with the gum line at a 45 degree angle. To remove bacteria responsible for unpleasant breath, brush your tongue or use a tongue scraper.
- Flossing your teeth daily. Use an adequate amount of floss for each tooth and gently floss the area multiple times to remove debris. Bleeding should not occur during gentle flossing.
Your oral hygiene routine at our dental centre should include:
- Regular check ups, and additional appointments if you experience any pain, discomfort or bleeding.
- A professional clean every six months.
By employing a regimented at home oral hygiene routine, and visiting our dental centre for check ups and regular cleans, you can actively discourage the development of dental diseases such as periodontitis.
