Dental Health Week 2022: Love Your Teeth | Ria Family Dental
Dental Health Week is the first week of August (1-7)!
Dental Health Week is the Australian Dental Association’s annual oral health promotion event.
This year’s tagline, “Love Your Teeth”, reinforces the importance of caring for your teeth and gums to help you maintain and smile for the rest of your life.
Ria Family Dental is happy to spread the word about this effort to improve Australian dental health.
#1. Use fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth twice daily
Even while you can’t completely eradicate the microorganisms that cause decay, you can manage them.
According to the Australian Dental Association, you should brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. This will protect the health of your teeth.
Food and bacteria are removed from your mouth when you brush your teeth and tongue using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
Additionally, brushing eliminates the debris that erodes your teeth and causes cavities.
#2. Every day, use dental floss or interdental brushes to clean in between your teeth
Plaque and food fragments lodged between your teeth and under your gums can be removed with flossing.
Proper flossing removes food debris and plaque buildup in locations where a toothbrush can’t easily reach.
#3. Limit added sugar intake while maintaining a healthy, balanced diet
Live a healthy lifestyle, including eating correctly, quitting smoking, and consuming little alcohol and sugar. Your teeth, gums, and mouth will benefit, as well as the rest of your body.
Nutrient-rich diets encourage solid teeth and gums. For maximum dental and general health, a balanced diet should include fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy, meals high in protein, and dairy products.
#4. Regularly visit your Yeronga dentist for check-ups and preventive care
The Value of Maintaining Good Dental Hygiene
Healthy teeth and a healthy mouth are signs of a healthy body. There’s a good chance that many people are unaware of this.
Cavities and gum disease can hurt your mouth and give you poor breath, making it difficult for you to eat or speak clearly.
The heart, diabetes, pregnancy, and chronic inflammatory conditions like arthritis, to name a few, are just a few of the other bodily organs that poor dental hygiene can seriously harm.
Your oral and overall health depend on your good dental hygiene. This is why it’s important to floss, wash your teeth twice a day, and go to the dentist regularly—at least once every six months.
Regular dental hygiene practices control bacterial populations to maintain good oral health and prevent illness from spreading to other body parts.
Remember that maintaining good oral hygiene requires consistent practice. A customised oral health regimen that will meet your needs can be discussed with your dentist.
Love Your Teeth!
Remember that keeping your natural teeth is a far better (and more affordable) choice.
These oral hygiene practices can be practised at home without taking up much of your time, whether you want to keep your mouth healthy or fight the symptoms of gum disease and periodontitis.
The time is now to incorporate these suggestions into your everyday routine so that they become a habit.
Ria Family Dental in Yeronga believes in providing comprehensive care that addresses both your short and long-term dental care concerns and pledge to offer a transparent, judgment-free environment where outstanding care is the only factor.
