Protecting Teeth

Tips for protecting your teeth

Dental decay & Gum disease

Attending dental check-ups on a regular basis is one of the most vital factors in ensuring teeth and gums remain in good condition for as long as possible. Maintaining good oral hygiene by flossing twice a day and seeing a hygienist regularly is also extremely important to reduce the risk of gum disease developing. Using a high fluoride toothpaste daily is a very good way of strengthening teeth and reducing the risk of tooth decay. Consuming sugary snacks only at meal times and not snaking between meals helps reduce the risk of developing tooth decay.

 

Dental Trauma

Dental trauma can result in a partially dislodged or a knocked out tooth. This is usually the result of an accident or sporting mishap. Purchasing a mouth guard could reduce the likelihood of experiencing dental trauma.

 

Protecting teeth from tooth wear

Some people clench or grind their teeth during the day or at night and suffer from bruxism – which means they grind their teeth during the night and this causes tooth wear. A night-guard may be useful in preventing tooth wear. Reducing intake of acidic drinks and foods can also reduce the risk of tooth wear. If acidic drinks must be consumed, then using a straw and consuming such drinks at meal times only reduces the risk of tooth wear.

 

Protecting teeth through better Oral hygiene

Patients are advised to carry out a series of simple steps to keep their teeth in a great condition:

  1. Brushing thoroughly twice every day, while ensuring flossing takes place at least once daily.
  2. Consuming a balanced diet that is rich in nutrients, as well as limiting intake of sugary snacks to meal times only.
  3. Using dental products that contain fluoride to strengthen teeth.
  4. Rinsing the mouth with a fluoride mouthwash daily can provide extra protection against tooth decay.
