HOW TO PREVENT TOOTHACHE AND GUM DISEASE

By: Smileway Dental

Healthy, clean, strong and healthy teeth are definitely what most people want. Healthy, clean and strong teeth can certainly make you feel more confident when you smile and talk to others. Let’s take care of your teeth by taking the following steps,if you do not want toothache:

1. Brush Teeth Regularly

Brush and brush your teeth 2 to 3 times a day. Brushing your teeth daily and flossing, with adjunct use of mouthrinse can keep your teeth healthy. Use soft bristles toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste. If you do not brush your teeth properly, it can cause a variety of health problems including tooth decay, gum diseases, bad breath and so on.

2. Do Not Smoke

Smoking can cause serious health problems including heart disease and lung cancer. Not only that, did you know that smoking can also cause damage to your teeth and gums. It causes gum disease and discoloured teeth. If you smoke, try stopping now.

3. Visit the Dentist

Brushing your teeth is not enough. Over time, tartar will form on your teeth and gum lines, they will need to be cleaned professionally. Visit your dentist at Smileway Dental at least once every six months for checkup and to clean your teeth.

4. Take enough Calcium

Calcium is not only good for bones, but it is also good to build strong teeth. Your teeth are embedded in the jawbone. If the bone density is fragile, your teeth will not have a strong footing. So, to get lots of calcium diligently eat foods and drinks that contain calcium such as yoghurt, milk, and cheese.

5. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is very important for keeping your gums healthy and disease-free. Vitamin C will also strengthen the connective tissue and blood vessels that hold the teeth in the jaw. In addition, the benefits of vitamin C can help reduce inflammation of the gums. You can take vitamin C supplements to improve your oral health or eat vitamin C-rich foods such as fruits, nuts, and vegetables.

6. Drink or Gargle with plain water after eating

Water helps clean the food particles left on the teeth. If you can’t brush your teeth, you should at least gargle with water after eating.

These are some of the steps you can take to have a stronger and healthier tooth. After all, we all want to make sure we are problem free and we can enjoy our life and food for many years. In Smileway Dental Clinic USJ and Smileway Dental Clinic Setapak we take care of your smile because we believe in “Creating Smiles That Matters” in your life. Take care everyone.

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven’t.

Having great experience so far. The doctor are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unncesssary treatment. The clinic is well lit and very clean👍👍. It is on the first and second so it will be a bit hard if you have a bad leg.

Surveyed few dentists before I decided to do my wisdom tooth surgery here. Very good service by Dr Edwin who was very gentle throughout the procedure. Most importantly, it was painless. Had good experience with the follow-up sessions too and hope to receive the same experience in my next visit. The nurses and receptionists are very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up for the good service and the will definitely come again.
