When good care is taken of your gums and teeth from an early stage of life, it means that your teeth can last for longer. But care is an on-going necessity. Strong, clean teeth and healthy gums can minimize the risks of disease by reducing both caries (dental decay) and gum disease (Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease), which can both lead to tooth loss.
By cleaning twice daily with a soft manual toothbrush or electric toothbrush, supported by good cleaning of in-between the teeth by dental floss or other aids, dental disease can be prevented. This should also be supported by regular visits to your dentist, Hygienist or Oral Hygiene Therapist.
