It will soon be Dental Health Week 2021, as this event runs from the 2nd to the 8th of August.
The Australian Dental Association’s major promotional campaign aims to educate patients about the importance of caring for their oral health.
The theme for 2021 is keeping your smile for life.
Bondi Dental promotes good oral health all year round, but Dental Health Week 2021 is a good opportunity to spread awareness of the importance of taking care of your teeth and gums to keep them for life.
Brush teeth twice a day with fluoride-containing toothpaste for two minutes each time
Plaque is a sticky film that builds up on teeth and contributes to cavities and gum disease.
Toothbrushing stops plaque from building up. Make sure you brush all surfaces of your teeth.
Clean between your teeth every day with floss or interdental brushes
Flossing is an important oral hygiene habit. It cleans and dislodges food stuck between your teeth, which reduces the amount of bacteria and plaque in your mouth.
Maintain a healthy, balanced diet and limit added sugar consumption
To prevent cavities and maintain good oral health, your diet — what you eat and how often you eat — are important factors.
Changes start the minute you eat certain foods. Bacteria in the mouth convert sugars and carbohydrates from the foods you eat to acids, and it’s the acids that begin to attack the teeth enamel, starting the decay process.
Visit your Bondi dentist for check-ups and preventive dental care
Routine check-ups and cleans play a vital role in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. A healthy mouth can help to protect the rest of your body from serious health disorders.
Oral infections can spread through the other parts of your body, including vital organs. Furthermore, keeping track of your dental health can detect signs of existing issues with your overall health that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Add these up, and you lower the chance of suffering tooth decay or gum disease. And that means less time in the dentist chair undergoing costly treatments.
Keep Your Smile for Life!
Your natural teeth are the best ones you have.
Hanging onto your actual teeth is a much better (and much cheaper) option.
