Preventative Oral Hygiene Routine

Poor oral health can 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. Every oral health routine should include brushing twice daily and flossing to regularly remove plaque build up and maintain a healthy and clean tooth surface.

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.

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 enabling early detection of potential problems before they escalate. At Main Street Dental we focus on implementing a preventative care program for all patients, helping each and every one achieve their optimal level of oral health.
