Here’s something we bet you didn’t know: according to the Australian Dental Association, tooth decay is the most common health problem, with five times the prevalence of that of asthma among children, making it the second most costly diet‐related disease in Australia!
With these interesting statistics, hearing a dentist say something like “All good. You’ve got nothing to worry about!” when you come in for a check-up would probably come as a (pleasant) shock and have you sighing with relief.
Perhaps there is no greater feeling than knowing that you are leaving the dental clinic with your oral health in tip top shape and nothing is wrong with your teeth and gums. Call that good news! Surely not everyone will hear that once they come in for their dental appointment.
And if you’re looking to find out how healthy your teeth, Dental Care Group in Armadale is here to provide customers with dental care and advice.
Maintain good oral health
Knowing your dental health is in its best condition is one thing, making sure it stays that way is another. To make sure that your teeth and gums remain healthy is the aim of Dental Care Group Armadale. You should be able to be confident that your mouth is healthy. Maintenance is a key ingredient in that process!
Pay your dentist a visit
To keep your teeth and gums healthy, it is important you continue to see your dentist and hygienist regularly! It’s ideal to visit the dental team at least twice a year. Remember that prevention is better than cure. When you visit your dental team regularly, they will be able to detect dental issues early, and this often means repairs, fixes or diagnoses are effective and not costly.
Get your toothbrush right
A toothbrush is one of, if not the essential tool for keeping our teeth healthy. But there is such a thing as choosing the right one. It’s not just a matter of picking the first one you see at the supermarket. Here are some few things you should considering when picking the right toothbrush for you:
Choose a toothbrush with soft, rounded bristles. And when brushing your teeth, don’t go hard! Brushing your teeth too hard is one of the causes of sensitive teeth.
Get the size right
When choosing a toothbrush, also consider the right toothbrush head. There are some toothbrushes in the market that may be too wide for you. You need one that offers full coverage and one that should be able to reach your molars.
Go for power
Another option that you have is getting a powered toothbrush or electric flosser. These can effectively and thoroughly clean your teeth. We stock and sell the latest powered oral hygiene products so that after your hygiene appointment you can immediately start implementing our processes and recommended techniques.
At Dental Care Group, we stock dozens of dental hygiene tools. We can recommend the correct ones, direct their use, and sell them to you at very competitive prices. We believe that if we can pass on savings for oral hygiene products – which results in you being able to obtain them right away – you can make a big difference (and immediate improvement) to your oral health.
In-between teeth cleaning
In addition to brushing, one way to make sure your teeth stay clean and healthy is by flossing or using some other sort of inter-tooth tool such as pixters. Flossing and/or pixtering prevents tooth decay and decreases the risk of developing gum disease. Not sure how to use these tools? Let us help you!
Proper brushing technique
We all know that we should be brushing our teeth at least twice a day. However, some might not be aware of the proper way to brush. To make sure your teeth stay healthy, you should practice the correct way of brushing your teeth. The proper brushing technique involves holding the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle, then pointing it toward the gum line. Importantly, take your time. More information on the correct brushing technique can be found on this page.
