Preventive oral care is a practice of keeping your gums and teeth healthy by following routine oral care routines. Preventive care practices are designed to keep your gums and teeth free of cavities, gum disease, wear and tear of the enamel, etc.
Routine oral care practices are easy enough as some of them can be followed right at home. Homecare routines involve brushing and flossing teeth every day. The use of an anti-bacterial mouthwash is also recommended to ward off infection from the gums and teeth.
Simple Preventive Oral Care Practices
The practice of brushing the enamel and gums are an integral part of maintaining oral healthcare. Dentists recommend brushing teeth twice a day with an ADA approved fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush.
Flossing helps remove food debris stuck between tight spaces of teeth. Patients who are brace-wearers would have to use dental floss to reach between metal brackets.
Regular Visits to the Dentist
An integral part of maintaining the health of your teeth and gums is to visit your dentist at least once in a year. Your dental hygienist or dentist would be able to keep a good track on your oral health and warn you of potential risks related to your dental health.
