A lot of people nowadays are not considering oral health as something important. Maintaining good dental hygiene should include educating people to properly taking care of our gums and teeth. Brushing your teeth three times a day or after meals is the first step to taking care of our teeth and gums and yet a lot of people neglect doing that so I guess that this is the best time to give some helpful tips to everyone one there.

Dental professionals have mentioned that majority of patients only visit them if they experience extreme toothache or needs to have the tooth pulled out. Most patients don’t consider getting a check up if they think that they can handle the situation themselves by self medicating with painkillers. Once the toothache goes away then they won’t consider having it checked. Dental professionals are advising people to visit their dentist at least twice every year for a routine teeth cleaning or prophylaxis. Prophylaxis provides deep cleaning on our teeth and gums which prevents the spread of tooth decay, reduces plaque and tartar build up and reduces the risk of gingivitis. Prophylaxis also can remove dirt from hard to reach areas which brushing cannot do alone. It is also important that we have our teeth checked for any cracks or holes that needs to be filled. Leaving your decaying teeth open and exposed increases the risk of infection and causes pus to build up making it the reason why we experience toothache and bad breath.

We should have this fixed as soon as possible to help save the tooth, usually dentists will clean the affected area and put dental fillings on it. The last thing that they want to do is a dental extraction because they want to do their best in saving healthy teeth. If you have missing set of teeth it is recommended for you to undergo cosmetic dentistry Chatswood by getting implants or high-quality dentures to fill the gap. This is not just for aesthetic purposes but having gaps on your teeth causes your remaining teeth to wobble and gums can get weaker which leads to more tooth loss. Go back to the basics by making sure to brush your teeth regularly and make it a habit to floss to remove trapped food particles embedded in between the teeth which is the main cause of tooth decay. Choose a toothpaste that is rich in calcium and fluoride. You can also gargle using a mouthwash for added protection. Drink water to help reduce tooth stains caused by drinking too much coffee, sodas or tea.
