How is Your Oral Health Tracking?

Every August marks the Australian Dental Association’s annual oral health promotion event and which aims to educate and encourage Australians to look after their dental health. This year the campaign focuses on a new initiative to track oral health here in Australia. It is tempting to think that most Australians have pretty good oral health, but unfortunately, this isn’t the reality. Some 65% of the population hasn’t seen a dentist in the last two years. Around half the population only brush their teeth once a day, and nearly 40% never floss. Nearly three-quarters of young people eat too many sugary foods.

These are worrying facts that we would love to change. Our practice is warm and friendly, and we particularly welcome people who haven’t been to the dentist for a while, perhaps because of dental fears or phobias. With the proper care, we can help people overcome these feelings and provide education on the best way to look after teeth.

The good news is that once you have healthy teeth, maintenance is easy with these tips:

  • Visit us regularly for checkups and cleans
  • Brush your teeth at least twice daily with fluoridated toothpaste
  • Floss daily, but if you hate flossing let us show you how easy it can be
  • Eat a healthy diet and limit your sugar consumption
