What preventive care measures should be followed ?

By following some simple preventive care steps will ensure a good oral health and hygiene.

  • Avoid all sugary related foods and drinks since excess consumption of these may wear away one's teeth and the enamel.
  • Daily brushing, cleaning and flossing your teeth with a tooth paste containing fluoride will prevent the occurrence of bacteria's and germs in the mouth.
  • It is always recommended to change your tooth brush once every 3 months when the bristles start to wither away.
  • Do make it a point to visit your dentist every six months to have a complete oral check up and an examination.
  • Chew sugar-free gums rather than sugar coated gums since sugar-free gums make your mouth to produce more saliva and prevent one's mouth from drying out. This will help to prevent dental decay and erosion of the teeth.
  • One can go for specially formulated tooth pastes that help to fight germ causing bacteria's, reduce the formation of plaque and tartar. Tooth pastes are also available for sensitive teeth and tooth whitening.
  • Flossing your mouth on a regular basis with mouthwashes and mouth rinses containing anti-bacterial ingredients will prevent tooth decay and gum causing diseases at hold.
  • Tests have revealed that using an electric tooth brush with an oscillating and rotating action will be more effective and productive since they can reach all the corners of the mouth which a manual tooth brush may not be able to do so.
