Prevention

Prevention is extremely important to us and our patients. It is through preventing further disease, either decay or gum disease that you will have healthy teeth and gums. We work with all patients to help their teeth feel and look great. We aim to decrease the amount of decay that our patients have. To stabilise any gum conditions to prevent bone loss around teeth and problems of bad breath. We like all our patients to attend regularly so that we can prevent dental problems arising:

The 5 important steps to keeping teeth healthy are:

  • Brush twice a day, in a systematic fashion (so that no tooth surfaces are missed), for two minutes.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste of the appropriate strength and after brushing, spit out any excess toothpaste, but do not rinse your mouth.
  • Clean between your teeth with floss, brushes or water jet.
  • Restrict the consumption of anything with sugar in it to meal times only.
  • Only eat or drink things free from sugar in between meals, suitable drinks are water, milk, tea without sugar, coffee without sugar, suitable foods are carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, sandwiches with savoury fillings, hot buttered toast, bread sticks, a bowl of soup, rice cakes, please restrict fruit snacks to one fruit snack a day as some fruits contain a lot of sugar that the bacteria in your mouth can use to cause dental decay.

For the full story on how best to look after your teeth please read the section on dental health which gives all current guidelines.
