Preventive dental care is important throughout your life, no matter your age. By practicing good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular checkups with your dentist, you can help keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come. Here are a few simple ways that you can prevent the build-up of plaque and cavities. Most people think they have healthy teeth and good dental hygiene, but in reality…
Most adults show signs of serious gum disease. In fact, this is the real reason why most people lose their teeth (not tooth decay as one might think).
25% of the adult population has suffered from oral pain in the last six months.
30% of all adults over 65 will lose all of their teeth.
Most adults suffer from bad breath.

The solution is treating and preventing any bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease by having regular preventive care visits – at least once every 6 months and by practicing good oral hygiene.

What you can do
Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Use fluoride toothpaste to remove food particles and plaque from the tooth surfaces. Also be sure to brush the top surface of your tongue; this will remove any extra plaque-causing food particles, and help keep your breath fresh!
Clean between your teeth by flossing at least once a day. You can also use a mouthwash to help kill bacteria and freshen your breath. Decay-causing bacteria can linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. Floss and mouthwash will help remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line
Eat a balanced diet, and try to avoid extra-sugary treats. Nutritious foods such as raw vegetables, plain yogurt, cheese or fruit can help keep your smile healthy
Remember to schedule regular checkups with your dentist every six months for a professional teeth cleaning
