What is your oral health routine? Do you have one?

Spring can be an excellent time of year to book yourself in for regular checkups and hygiene appointments, especially as the summer months can be busy for many people. Regular check-ups with your dentist should be part of your preventative dental care routine and it’s an easy way to maintain a healthy mouth.

Some of the key advantages of preventative dental care are outlined below.

1 – Reducing Plaque

Plaque is the tacky substance made up of food particles and saliva that mix in your mouth.

If you don’t brush properly after meals, it begins to form and build up on your teeth. This is problematic because plaque contains bacteria, which can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.

Regular dental visits and cleanings remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. If plaque is left to build up over your teeth and gums, it increases your risk of gum disease, cavities and other dental problems.

2 – Reversing Early Gum Disease

Early gum disease is called gingivitis and is entirely reversible with improved oral care. We can professionally clean your teeth and provide advice on how to brush and floss more effectively. If you don’t treat gingivitis, it will soon progress into periodontal disease, a condition that destroys gum and bone, causing tooth loss.

3 – Protecting Your Overall Health

Your oral health is closely linked to overall health. When your mouth is free from dental disease, it protects you against serious health problems like diabetes, heart disease and other systemic diseases. Also, we can screen regularly for oral cancer, as early detection can lead to a far better long-term prognosis.
