A Guide to Oral Health

Routine dental treatment is an important part of maintaining good oral health

Oral Health - A guide to oral hygiene

While many physical health problems are beyond our control and there’s little we can do to prevent them, thankfully our oral health works a little differently.

When it comes to dental care, there are plenty of steps you can take to greatly improve your oral health, simply by engaging in good oral hygiene practices.

Taking proper care of our teeth can help to prevent a wide range of dental problems, including some diseases that can develop due to a lack of adequate oral care.

Your guide to maintaining good oral health

While you’re likely to have learnt the basics of oral hygiene as a child, it’s always useful to remind yourself of the actions you should take to keep your dental health in optimal condition, so you can enjoy good oral health for life.

Oral Hygiene - Brushing Teeth

Brushing twice-a-day

Although you’ve probably been brushing your teeth all your life, most of us can benefit from a quick reminder about the most effective way to brush:

  • Hold your toothbrush at a 45° angle.
  • Use a circular motion to scrub away food particles and plaque.
  • Clean the gums, tongue and roof of your mouth.
Oral Hygiene - Flossing Teeth

Daily flossing

Any dentist will tell you that flossing is just as important as brushing for maintaining good oral health and preventing dental problems.

The benefits of regular flossing include:

  • Prevention of gingivitis (early-stage gum disease) and periodontitis (severe gum disease)
  • Removal of bacteria-forming food particles that get stuck between the teeth and the surrounding gum area
  • Prevention of tooth decay and cavities
Oral Hygiene - Eating Healthy

Healthy eating

Being mindful of what you eat can affect more than just your waistline!

A healthy diet that’s low in sugar can help to reduce the development of oral bacteria and the resulting cavities and decay that can form.

What’s more, a diet rich in vitamins D and C, calcium, and fluoride will help to support strong and healthy teeth.
