What most people don’t realise is that inadequate oral hygiene can lead to tooth loss, bone loss and contribute to the development of heart disease. This is why we’re passionate about promoting good oral hygiene habits!
Inadequate oral hygiene can cause gum disease, or Gingivitis, which can cause Periodontitis if untreated. At Newcastle Family Dental we endeavour to help you develop a strong and effective oral hygiene routine that will help you protect your teeth for life. We recommend that this should include:
- Brushing twice daily
- Flossing daily
- Regular check-ups every 6 months
This system of regular check-ups has a dual purpose. Firstly it is to ensure that we can detect and treat any potential issues before they escalate. Secondly, even the most thorough hygiene routine needs a professional touch to remove any tough plaque and leave your smile bright, fresh and revitalised.
If it has been a while since you checked in with a dentist contact our friendly team to arrange a check-up.
