Maintaining optimal dental health goes beyond just having a beautiful smile; it’s an integral part of your overall health and wellbeing. At Diamond Dental, we’re passionate about empowering our patients with knowledge and resources to keep their smiles shining

Here are our top tips for maintaining exceptional dental health:

  1. Regular Brushing and Flossing

    Brushing your teeth at least twice a day helps remove plaque and prevent tooth decay. Flossing daily, preferably before bedtime, can get rid of food debris and plaque from between your teeth and under the gumline where a toothbrush can’t reach.

  2. Use Fluoride Toothpaste

    Fluoride is a champion when it comes to combating tooth decay. It strengthens enamel and reduces the risk tooth damage from caries and acid. Ensure your toothpaste and mouth rinse contain fluoride.

  3. Mind Your Diet

    Limit your frequency of sugary drinks and snacks, which can lead to cavities. Sugars are broken down by moth bacteria to form acid, the more often you take sugary foods the more often the acid builds up.

  4. Regular Dental Check-ups

    Regular check-ups allow your dentist to detect any dental issues early and promote a healthy mouth. You should visit your dentist at Diamond Dental every six to twelve months (depending on risk) for a professional cleaning and examination.

  5. Quit Smoking

    Smoking increases you risk to gum disease and oral cancer, and also a host of other medical conditions. It can also stain and discolour your teeth.

  6. Change Your Brush Regularly

    Dentists recommend changing your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do an excellent job of cleaning your teeth.
