Brush only those teeth you want to keep

Seeing a dentist regularly helps to keep your mouth in top shape and allows your dentist to watch for developments that may point to other health issues. A dental exam can also detect poor nutrition and hygiene, growth and development problems and improper jaw alignment. Provide your dentist with a complete medical history and inform him or her of any recent health developments, even if they seem unrelated to your oral health.

  • At home, you can practice good oral hygiene:
    • Brush twice a day for at least two minutes, using fluoridated toothpaste.
    • Floss daily to remove plaque from places your toothbrush can’t reach.
    • Eat a healthy diet to provide the nutrients necessary (vitamins A and C, in particular) to prevent gum disease.
    • Avoid cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, which are known to contribute to gum disease and oral cancer.
    • Visit the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams. This is one of the most effective ways to detect the early signs of gum disease.

Your smile is the best attire you ever wear

No matter what age, prevention is the key to maintaining good oral health. Knowing what particular dental problems you are at risk for developing and how you can reduce those risks will help you decide the most appropriate means to prevent dental problems.

Susceptibility to various dental problems change as people age. Each person’s risk factors are unique. A thorough understanding of what they are is necessary to adequately reduce those risks.

Every smile has a unique personality

The best way to remove decay-causing plaque is by brushing and flossing your teeth every day. Brushing helps remove plaque from the tooth surfaces.

Brush your teeth twice a day, with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth, allowing you to reach all areas easily. Use toothpaste that contains fluoride, which helps protect your teeth from decay. When choosing any dental product, look for the Canadian Dental Association Seal of Acceptance, an important symbol of a dental product’s safety and effectiveness.

Cleaning between the teeth once a day with floss or interdental cleaners removes plaque from between the teeth, areas where the toothbrush can’t reach. It is essential in preventing periodontal (gum) disease. Think of flossing as “Brushing in between your teeth.”

By taking care of your teeth, eating a balanced diet and visiting your dentist and hygienist regularly, you can have healthy teeth and an attractive smile your entire life.
