cleaning & prevention

Our Doctor's feel that it is very important that you understand that you play a big part in the maintenance of your oral health.

 

Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where the intake of harmful foods is controlled. Our program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored and manage periodontal disease. At the initial visit oral hygiene instructions are reviewed and are reinforced at subsequent recall visits. The following are helpful recommendations:

 

  • Brush your teeth three times a day in a circular motion with a soft bristled toothbrush aimed at the gum line to make sure that you are moving in a downward motion for upper teeth and an upward motion for lower teeth.
  • Floss every night in an up and down motion while keeping the floss in a U-shape and against the tooth surface.
  • Avoid smoking!!!
  • Avoid sticky, sugary foods.
  • Eat a balanced diet.
  • Use antiseptic and fluoride rinses as directed.
  • Sealants should be place by one of our hygienists on young permanent teeth.

 

If you have any questions about how you can help in preventing oral health problems, please feel free to speak with one of our United Smiles of Kensington members here in Toronto, ON today.
