We are here to give you the scoop on the essentials of how to own your oral health, as well as a few updates in our clinic!
Why Is Oral Health So Important?
The Canadian Dental Association states that oral health is good for life, and recommends a few easy steps for best practice. First, you should see your dentist regularly. By doing so, you will be able to have your teeth professionally cleaned and assessed, while also being examined for future problems such as a looming cavities! Diet also plays a huge part in oral health, as what we eat makes direct contact with our teeth and gums. Limiting foods with high amounts of sugar and carbohydrates is one way to help ensure your enamel stays strong.
Other tips include regularly checking your mouth for any changes such as swelling, or white patches, and limiting your intake of alcohol and smoking! Make sure you are brushing at least twice a day, and try to floss before brushing as this can help break up any food stuck inbetween your gums!
