Not only is practicing good oral hygiene vital in maintaining good oral health, it has a major impact on your general well-being. Studies have shown that poor oral health can play a role in the development of other health problems such as heart disease and strokes, while also creating further risk for individuals suffering from diabetes and respiratory diseases.
To prevent tooth decay and gum disease developing, it is necessary to maintain a thorough oral hygiene routine. This consists of cleaning your teeth, gums and mouth twice daily using correct brushing techniques and flossing once daily. It is also important to visit your dentist for regular check-ups and a professional clean every six months to remove any build up of hard plaque and identify potential problems, prevention is better than a cure.
Arrange a check-up with our team at South Coast City Dental to evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. Our aim is to help all our patients obtain their optimal oral health level.
