Prevention is always the best medicine and is the number one priority for the Cranbourne Family dental team.
Regular Dental Checkups
The best way to maintain good oral health is to visit your dentist every 6 months or as advised by your clinician depending on your risk factors. Detecting problems early allows the most conservative form of treatment to be used whilst also enabling a thorough professional clean. By the time you start to get symptoms, the cause has often progressed to an advanced stage.
Good Oral Hygiene
This includes using a fluoridated toothpaste, and brushing at least twice a day. Flossing daily is also imperative as plaque also builds up in between your teeth, which your toothbrush alone cannot remove. A mouthwash or topical paste may also be of benefit, though it is best to ask your Cranbourne Family dentist about which is best for you.
