Preventive Care - Oral Hygiene
Proper oral health care is paramount to the health of your teeth, gums and mouth. Prevention is always better than a cure. Maintaining a thorough oral hygiene routine is critical to maintaining optimal oral health and avoiding tooth decay and gum disease. Poor oral health can actually impact directly on your general health with known links to heart disease and stroke to name a few. Gum disease is also the number one cause of tooth loss in adult Australians.
Regular visits to the dentist for a preventative care check-up and professional clean are a key component in any thorough oral hygiene routine. A visit every 6 months is recommended allowing for the diagnosis of any potential oral health problems before they escalate. Here at Sailors Bay Dentistry we focus on implementing a preventative care program for all our patients, helping each and every one achieve their optimal level of oral health. Apart from our care, every thorough oral health routine should include brushing twice daily and flossing to regularly remove plaque build ups and maintain a healthy, clean tooth surface.
