  • Take note of bad breath

Bad breath indicates the presence of bacteria in the mouth. Therefore, flossing every day and brushing your teeth twice a day are important habits to prevent the breeding of bacteria. Antimicrobial mouth washes and sugar-free chewing gum can also be used to freshen your breath and stimulate the production of saliva which can help fight cavities.

  • Stop smoking

Smoking causes bad breath and stains your teeth. Furthermore, smoking is extremely bad for your overall health and is the cause of many serious diseases. Smokers are more likely to develop gum disease and other conditions like oral or lung cancer.

  • Don’t share toothbrushes

We all know that when a relationship moves to the next level, it means keeping a toothbrush at your partner’s home. Our dentists encourage this because sharing a toothbrush means sharing bacteria.

  • Brighten your smile

A confident smile means a confident you. There are several over the counter products which you can use to whiten your teeth or you can have a whitening treatment done at our dentist in Claremont.

  • Cavities can be contagious

Whether you are sharing a fork or kissing your partner, bacteria that causes dental cavities can spread between people. To prevent this, make sure you brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes and floss regularly.

  • Pay a visit to your dentist

Regular visits to our dentist can help prevent any serious dental issues. Our dentist will be able to identify any problems or potential issues and can advise you on how to prevent unwanted oral health issues.
