Prevention, prevention, prevention!

Regular check ups from our dental hygienist in Papamoa are the best way to ensure a healthy mouth but there are lots of other preventative measures. We love chatting about these.

Try to minimise the intake of sugars and acids, particularly from sugary drinks. Less sugar and acid equals less tooth decay.

Home care:
Twice daily brushing with fluoride toothpaste and at least once daily flossing or interdental brushing  helps prevent the two main causes of tooth loss: tooth decay and gum disease.
