We are big advocates for preventative dentistry. What this means is, we want to look after your natural teeth for as long as possible. The best treatment in dentistry is to prevent problems from occurring.
Cavities are linked with poor oral hygiene and the foods/drinks you consume. Sugar is our teeth’s worst enemy. Sugar leaves a film over our teeth which in turn creates an acid, that actively eats away at our teeth. For best practice, it is advisable to brush your teeth after every meal to remove any left over food debris or sugary film.
Now we know that after every meal can seem quite extreme – but this would be the gold standard to taking care of teeth. The daily guidelines are at least twice a day (which can still deliver very good oral hygiene).
