can I prevent tooth decay and gum disease?
Good oral hygiene starts at home. Steps you can take to prevent
tooth decay and gum disease include:
Brush at least twice daily using a soft-bristle toothbrush and
an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste. This helps prevent tooth
decay, gum disease, and the need for costly cosmetic or restorative
dentistry in the future. Replace your brush every two to three
Flossing is crucial to the health of your teeth and gums and
the prevention of gum disease. When flossing, use an 18-inch strand
of floss. Ease the floss between each tooth; then, sweep it up
and down several times while curving around the tooth at the gum
line. Don’t forget to floss behind your last tooth and to
floss bridges and artificial teeth with the aid of a floss threader.
Regular dental visits
Dental experts are trained to find the spots that go commonly
unseen. Plus, if there are any dental issues they can be made
worse over time. It is best if you visit twice a year for a cleaning
and check up. Be sure to come in for any emergencies! Remember,
Beach dental always accepts Emergencies and Walk-Ins.
