Good oral hygiene is vital for overall health as well as for helping you achieve that perfect smile. Our dentists in Subiaco can recommend the best oral hygiene practices to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Why is oral hygiene important?
Taking care of your teeth and gums helps to prevent tooth decay, gum disease and other oral hygiene issues, so you will only have to visit the dentist for your scheduled check-ups.
Oral hygiene is important at all stages of life.
Taking care of your mouth
Preventive dentistry begins at home. Make sure your teeth and gums get the care they deserve by:
- Brushing your teeth at least twice a day with high-quality toothpaste
- Flossing daily to remove bacteria from hard-to-reach areas
Your diet and lifestyle could also be affecting your oral hygiene. Your dentist may recommend cutting down on sugary foods and drinks, giving up smoking and other steps to help you fight dental erosion and prevent gum disease.
