Dental Care Tips

Here we have provided some basic information that you can use to keep your teeth healthy.

Essential At-Home Routine

You should brush your teeth at least twice a day, in the morning after breakfast and before going to bed. Ideally you should brush after every meal.

Floss at least once a day. This is a key factor in preventing dental problems. The most serious gum disease trouble spots are usually between the teeth. Flossing will help to keep those areas clean and prevent gum disease.

You must take care of your teeth between visits.
The best way to ensure your dental and overall health is to eat a balanced diet which follows Canada’s Food Guide. A diet high in sugar is particularly bad for teeth as it will lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
Trouble Signs
Contact your dentist if you experience bad breath that won’t go away; your gums bleed when you brush or floss; dry mouth; a tooth that is a little bit loose; mouth sores that don’t heal in 7 to 10 days; white or red patches in your mouth; teeth that are sensitive to hot, cold, sweetness or pressure.
