Nowadays, most people will maintain their natural teeth over their entire lifetime. Following these nine dental care tips can help ensure you're part of that lucky majority:
- Drink fluoridated water and use fluoride toothpaste.
- Take care of your teeth and gums. Thorough tooth brushing and flossing to reduce dental plaque can prevent gingivitis.
- Avoid tobacco. Tobacco use in any form increases the risk for gum disease, oral and throat cancers, and oral fungal infection (candidiasis).
- Limit alcohol. When used alone, alcohol is a risk factor for oral cancers. When used in combination with tobacco, the effects are even greater.
- Eat wisely. Avoid sugary or starchy snacks and aim for five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
- Visit the dentist regularly. Checkups can detect early signs of oral health problems and lead to treatments that will prevent further damage.
- Diabetic patients should work to maintain control of their disease. An increased risk of gum disease is a complication of diabetes.
- If medications produce a dry mouth, ask your doctor if there are other drugs that can be substituted. If not, drink plenty of water, chew sugarless gum, and avoid tobacco and alcohol.
- Before beginning any treatment for cancer, have an oral health checkup. Radiation to the head or neck and/or chemotherapy may cause problems for your teeth and gums.
