Dental Health Week 2021: Keep Your Smile for Life | Sayers Dental Aesthetics & Implants
It’s almost Dental Health Week here in Australia, as this event runs from the 2nd to the 8th of August.
The theme for 2021 is keeping your smile for life.
Sayers Dental Aesthetics & Implants promotes good oral health year-round, but Dental Health Week is an ideal opportunity to spread awareness of the importance of taking care of your teeth and gums.
Brush teeth at least twice a day with fluoride-containing toothpaste for two minutes each time
When brushing your teeth, you remove food particles and plaque — a sticky white film that forms on your teeth and contains bacteria.
After eating a meal that contains sugar, the bacteria in plaque produce acids that attack tooth enamel.
In time, the acid can break down tooth enamel, causing cavities. Plaque that isn’t removed can also harden into tartar, making it harder to keep teeth clean.
Tartar build-up on your gums leads to inflammation that causes gum disease.
Clean between your teeth every day with floss or interdental brushes
Flossing helps remove bacteria, plaque, and food from between your teeth, and it reduces the likelihood of tooth decay and gum disease.
Maintain a healthy, balanced diet and limit added sugar consumption
For healthy living and healthy teeth and gums, think before you eat and drink. It’s not only what you eat but the time you eat that can affect your dental health.
Eat a balanced diet and limit in-between-meal snacks.
Visit your Hoppers Crossing dentist for check-ups and preventive dental care
With regular examinations, your dentist can identify early warning signs so you can get treatment started right away.
The fact that good oral hygiene and dental maintenance can extend your life expectancy might be hard to believe, but it is true.
Good dental health adds to life in a number of ways that go beyond just the teeth.
