Healthy teeth and gums

Healthy teeth and gums

We’ve all heard the saying that prevention is better than cure. The Blue Gum Dental approach to oral health is no different. While a regular dentist visit may not be something to look forward to, keeping your oral health in check can save you time and money. If that’s not a compelling argument, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to side-step the any discomfort.  Once you have the basics covered, it’s time for expert help.

Keeping your mouth healthy starts with the basics. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily are a must to maintain a healthy smile. 

Lifestyle factors also contribute to healthy teeth and gums. 

Eating a varied diet with fruit and vegetables is great for whole mouth health. In contrast, a diet high in refined sugars actually helps bacteria grow and creates acids that can weaken tooth enamel. This is especially true for soft drinks, so where possible, opt for water.  

Regular dentist visits ensure that your daily dental routine gets a helping hand, particularly in those hard to reach places.

Your dentist can see things that no amount of time in mirror can reveal.

It is also a great opportunity to get a professional opinion and treat any issues before they get serious (or painful). 

Visiting the dentist twice a year can help you avoid unexpected dental issues that could end up being costly and painful down the track.

Having a routine dental check-up comes with many benefits. It is a combined approach to preventing tooth decay, cavities and gum issues. 

Not only does a regular teeth cleaning from your dentist feel great, it helps you maintain good oral health. 

We all know that good habits are just as hard to break. That’s why establishing good oral health for your little ones, is just as important as looking after your own teeth. 

By the time your child is two, it is recommended that you make an appointment for their first dentist visit. Your dentist will perform a visual examination of your child’s teeth, as well as address any concerns or identify any possible future issues.

While children can be hesitant when it’s time to see the dentist, our team is experienced in all aspects of children’s dentistry.

As a family-friendly practice, we ensure that your child’s experience is a positive and reassuring one and paves the way for healthy teeth and gums.
