At North Brisbane Family Dental, our goal is to identify potential problems and prevent them from happening. We can achieve this through regular dental examinations. This will include a thorough inspection of your teeth and gums and cleaning of any build up. We may need to take x-rays to check for cavities and to inspect the health of your jaw bones.
In between dental visits there are a number of things you can do to ensure the health of your teeth and gums. These include
- Clean. Brush your teeth morning and night with a soft or electric tooth brush, using a fluoride toothpaste. Don't forget to floss everyday as well!
- Eat. Try and limit your exposure to sugary and acidic foods and drinks. Drink lots of water. Tap water is best as it contains fluoride which strengthens teeth.
- Protect. If you are playing contact or extreme sports, wear a custom made mouth guard to protect your teeth, gums and jaws.
As your Banyo family dental practice, we can ensure the ongoing health of your mouth.
