Preventative dental care and good dental hygiene are proven ways to ensure optimal dental and oral health.

Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is the primary aim of dental hygiene. Actions generally include:

  • regular visits to the dentist
  • hygiene cleaning
  • daily brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash

Good dental hygiene improves the health and appearance of your teeth and reduces the risk of tooth decay, cavities and gum disease.

How often should I visit the dentist?

At Chelmer Village Dental, we recommend coming to see your dentist every six months or so for a check-up. Detecting early signs of decay or damage can potentially reduce the need for later dental treatments.

Professional hygiene cleaning removes plaque and tartar build-up as well as bacteria along the gum line and hard to reach areas of your mouth.

Your dentist will be happy to advise you on the most effective daily home-tooth-care habits such as brushing and flossing.

How can I optimise dental hygiene at home?

Brushing your teeth correctly with an appropriate toothbrush is a simple daily routine that can greatly improve dental hygiene. Using a fluoride toothpaste, brush your teeth for at least two minutes in the morning and two minutes at night. Use a fluoride mouthwash to rinse your mouth after brushing.

You should change your toothbrush every three months or so. It is also a good idea to floss your teeth once a day and periodically clean your tongue using a tongue scraper.

What can I do to reduce the risk of dental problems?

These healthy lifestyle choices can help to reduce the risk of oral health issues such as gum disease and tooth decay:

  • consuming a balanced diet and limiting high sugar foods and drinks
  • regular exercise
  • cutting down or stopping smoking
