Oral Health

Oral health, or oral hygiene, is the absence of active disease in the mouth. It affects your overall health and wellbeing and enables you to live your life to the fullest without discomfort or embarrassment. There are a few simple ways you can practice good oral hygiene at home:

  • Always brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, after breakfast and before bed
  • Cleaning between your teeth once a day with floss or another interdental cleaner
  • Replacing your toothbrush every three to four months
  • Eating a balanced diet, and limiting sugary and acidic foods
  • Scheduling regular dental check-ups
  • Quit smoking as it damages gums and teeth, and greatly increases the chances of oral cancer
