Your Dental Health
To ensure you and your family are practicing good oral hygiene at home, be sure to:
- Brush at least three times a day using a fluoridated toothpaste
- Floss daily
- Eat a well-balanced, healthy diet
- Stop smoking
- Drink water rather than soft drinks containing acid, sports drinks and vitamin waters. This will help prevent decay.
- Discontinue use of smokeless tobacco products
By following these steps, you can help prevent common problems such as cavities, gingivitis, periodontal disease (gum disease) and oral cancer as well as prohibit the development of more serious diseases that affect your overall health, including heart disease and diabetes.
