What you can do at home
Looking after your oral health at home is fairly straightforward. By brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing your teeth at least once a day you are helping to keep your teeth clean. Other things you can do are drink plenty of water—as this helps to rinse your mouth of food particles—and chew sugar-free gum after lunch. Refraining from too many sugary drinks and foods like soft drink and chocolate is also a good way to maintain healthy teeth.
If you’re curious about the importance of flossing, consider this: when you brush your teeth you are missing about 30% of your tooth. By flossing and brushing you are able to clean the whole tooth and reduce the risk of decay.
You should visit Carnegie Dental Group every six months. With a regular scale and clean we can help you maintain optimal oral hygiene, preventing any problems from becoming serious. Visiting the dentist only when the pain is bad can end up costing you a lot. And not just financially. Having a filling is better than needing root canal therapy; and root canal therapy is better than losing a tooth.
The best thing for your oral health is keeping your natural teeth, as each tooth plays a role in the health of your gums and jawbone. When you bite the pressure helps stimulate jawbone health, stopping it from shrinking. If you were to lose tooth the bone that holds the tooth root in place starts to atrophy and this has long term effects not only on your jawbone but also on your gums and your remaining teeth.
